The Atlantic Ocean is the boundary to the eastern coast of North America. This ocean covers over 40 million square miles in area. There are many different landforms on the ocean floor of the Atlantic Ocean. There are trenches, plains and canyons, to name a few. Since the Atlantic Ocean is from the northern area close to Greenland and then travels all the way down to South America, the temperatures for the water are quite different.
The Atlantic Ocean contains the most salt when compared to the other oceans. The Atlantic Ocean is divided into the three main sections based on its water masses and then each section is subdivided into smaller subsections. There are the upper waters, intermediate waters, and deep and abyssal waters.
The Virginia governor commissioned George Washington to claim the Ohio River Valley for themselves during the French and Indian War. At this point in time, the United States wasn’t a thing. George Washington was still very much a British soldier, and a somewhat loyal one, to start. For those who don’t know, and I didn’t know this before researching for this question, Washington’s actions in the American Revolutionary War were influenced by his time serving for the British during the French and Indian War.
Either way, the Virginia governor wanted the British government to do more than they had been doing to stop the French from claiming the Ohio River Valley for themselves. Due to his vocal interest in this, he was given the power to fight the French. Hence his calling Washington for help.
