Map: The Proclamation Line of 1763
The Proclamation Line of 1763
This map shows European settlement east of the Appalachian Mountains and the numerous Indian tribes with territorial
claims to the lands between the Appalachians and the Mississippi River. The Proclamation Line, which roughly follows the
mountain range, was the British government's effort to temporarily halt colonial westward expansion and thus to prevent
bloodshed between settlers and Indians. This British policy was deeply resented by land-hungry colonists.
