Storyboard Text

  • 1763, England
  •   Since we have now won the French and Indian War, we need to keep our new land. How can we keep it from the French, though? Actually, I may have an idea...
  • What is your idea, King George III?
  • We fought hard in the French and Indian War, with England. We were promised some of the land that we were fighting for, but now that we have won, we have heard rumors that we wouldn't get that land, and we know that we have to pay for the war.
  • 1763 in the Colonies
  • Again in England...
  • I am now ordering that colonists will be prohibited from living west of the Appalachian Mountains, on Native American land. The Colonists will still pay taxes on this land, though. This will be called the Proclamation of 1763. This will be great for us, here in England.
  • England is treating us terribly! Now, not only do we have to pay for this war that we fought in, but also, we do not get to have the land that we were fighting for in the French and Indian War. This is bad for us, so we really need England to repeal, or revoke this formally or officially.
  • The Colonies, after the Proclamation of 1763...
  • Later in England...
  • Apparently, the Colonists do not like the Proclamation of 1763,but it was a very good thing for us. It is also a very good thing for us that we follow a mercantilist policy.  This means that they have to give us their raw materials.
  • England
  • This Proclamation of 1763 was a great idea! Now, we are keeping peace between the Colonists and Native Americans, and we have stronger authority in the places we are keeping the Colonists in. Now, we will just send 10,000 troops to enforce this law.
