In the posting, students will explain the effects of the Proclamation of 1763 on English colonies.
The French and Indian War had taken a toll on all those involved. To end the war, the British had to come up with a plan and quick. Their solution was to end westward expansion. This proclamation decreed by King George III declared that the Appalachian Mountains were the temporary western boundary for all the colonies. Governors could not grant land west of this restricted area without the king's permission.
The Proclamation of 1763 created more tension between the colonists and Britain. Colonists felt their way of life was being challenged. The purchase of land was the colonists' path to freedom. Britain saw things differently. Britain wanted more control as the population of the colonies grew. Even though both sides were unhappy, Britain seemed to have the advantage. For Britain, giving in was not an option.
Undoubtedly, the colonists felt threatened by the increased British presence. They saw the proclamation as a restraint on their freedom. The British finance minister was instructed to monitor trade within the colonies to see if anyone was smuggling goods. They even began searching homes and warehouses for smuggled goods. This didn't go well with the colonists.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 11:18 pm ad1c9bdddf>
