FC: The Proclamation line of 1763
1: It was the end of a long tiresome war. Britain had won. Everyone was celebrating, because of the new land, that would soon be theirs! Unfortunately, the Parliament had other plans.
2: The Parliament came up with The Proclamation of 1763.They decided to reserve, the land North and West of the Appalachian Mountains to the American Indians. You could only imagine what happened next.
3: Well the colonists were mad! After fighting for 7 years, they had hoped to gain some land in the Appalachian mountains.
4: Not only was the land issue a problem, the colonists felt threatened by all the British troops that were standing across the Proclamation line.
5: The colonists still felt like the Parliament did not have the right to do this.They were sick and tired of being bossed around. Therefore they continued moving westward.
6: The British did have their reasons for starting this divide. | The real point of all this was to sooth their fears of Indian attacks.
7: The Proclamation of 1763 was one of the many events that strained the colonist's relationship with Great Britain. Later on, this all lead to the American Revolution.
