    France had a nominal claim to Canada and much of the land west of the Appalachians and East of the Mississippi.  British North America was mostly limited to the Eastern seaboard of what's now the US, the land East of the Appalachians. The Spanish controlled Florida, which at the time included what's now the Alabama and Mississipi coastline west to Louisiana.  But Florida was an economic backwater of the Spanish empire, valuable mostly to keep another power from controlling it and threatening Spanish traffic out of the Gulf and Caribbean.  Their control was limited to a few forts and cities.  The same was true in the immensely vast territories which French claimed in mainland America.  You had New Orleans and nearby settlements in the South, and you had Montreal and settlements in the St Lawrence valley in the North, but in between it was really Native American land with scattered French forts and outposts (many at places which would later become American cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, and St Louis)
