Description

Manila, 1762-1764

Britain declared war against Spain, an ally of France, during Europe's Seven Years War (1756-1763). British forces sailed from India and invaded Manila in 1762, taking over the port city and other provinces. Although the rest of the Philippines remained under Spanish rule, the loss of a key port drastically diminished colonial resources. The British occupation ended as part of the peace settlement of the Seven Years War.
