During the Seven Years' War, the French captured the Mediterranean island of Menorca from the British. Of course, the subsequent British victory in the war assured that the seizure would be annulled by the Treaty of Paris (1763). Perhaps more French success in the war and an earlier entry of Spain could assure they hold onto the island?May I please ask if there is any example from History of a British colony being captured and held by the French during the 18th Century? (I've been trying to imagine what sort of changes might affect a sugar island or a North American colony captured from the British by the Ancien Régime at some point during the late 1600s or early 1700s, but have run headlong into my own ignorance of the subject).
Thank You in advance for your consideration!
