Proclamation of 1763

by: Azi Williams

What Happened ?

October 7,1763 by King George lll after the French Indian War was when the Proclamation of 1763 occurred. It forbade all settlers from setting past a line accross the Appalachian Mountain range. The purpose was to organize Great Britain's new empire and stabilize north american Native relations through regulations.

Their Reaction

Colonial blood was shed to fight french and indians not to cede land to them. What was going to happen for the colonists that had already settled in the west? The colonist had already begun to think of expanding into the west. Why restrict them? Could this be plot to keep the colonist under imperial thumbs ?
