Proclamation Act

The Proclamation of 1763 was an attempt to establish a western border of 13 colonies. The boarder was the Appalachian Mountains. The colonists were not supposed to settle west of the Appalachians.  The parliament was hoping this would satisfy the Native Americans in the area, reducing the need for troops along the border to protect colonist from Indian attacks. However, this actually affected the colonists  because those who were settled were forced to return to the eastern side of the Appalachians. This resource is helpful to break down everything about the proclamation act. From the trades involved, the map, and important facts.
