History of Orlando: 1756 The Seven Years' War, the contest between Britain Orlando Metro Map and France for North Country that is known as the French and Indian War in the colonies, Orlando Metro Map begins in earnest. Rhode Island raises the appointed number of men, but they do not see much combat in the first phases of the conflict. They participate in a failed attack on Fort Ticonderoga and help protect New York's frontier; they also take part in the campaign that sees Cuba fall into British hands. After the Treaty of Paris in 1763, Rhode Island finds itself deeply in debt, racked with internal dissension, and facing a reduced role in the Atlantic world. 1758 Publication of the Mercury, a newspaper, begins in Newport. The pages contain news and advertisements, as well as social announcements, indicating the Newport gentry's growing prosperity and taste for refinement in the years before the War for Independence. Providence's newspaper opens for business in 1762. 1760s Rhode Island is the site of a bitter internal conflict between Samuel Ward and Stephen Hopkins, each of whom serves as governor on and off through the late 1750s and 1760s. Each spearheads a political party; Hopkins's is most powerful in Providence and the northern towns, while Ward generally wins elections in the southern towns. The two square off on matters of taxation, currency, and patronage. Interestingly, both Ward and Hopkins journey to Philadelphia for the First Continental Congress.
