Citizens and government officials were not allowed to purchase land from the Indians. Only licensed traders could make a trade with the Indians. The laws were passed by King George III and were passed on October 7, 1763

  • The British had just won the war and gained a huge load of land. All this land needed protection. They felt this act was necessary because it was very costly to put protection on any more land. They didn't have any money, so to prevent from having to spend, they passed the laws
  • The Colonists were very angry about these laws. Citizens greed for more land, money, and resources lead to illegal exploration. Eurpeans thought that they discovered this land and that they should have a right to further explore the land.
