King George of England forbade colonization and expansion west of the Appalachian Mountains, deeming that land to belong to the Indians. Colonists felt that they were cheated and the land should be theirs. (George did this proclamation to placate angry Indians who had sided against him in the recently concluded 7 Years War (known in the colonies as the French and Indian War)). Hope this helps.
why did the proclamation of 1763 cause colonist to distrust the government?? Plz help
