Proclamation of 1763

Questions to Answer:

1. How did it come about?

  • After the war, Great Britain owned most of the land between the Appalachian Mountains and the Mississippi River.

2. What were the results?

  • The Native Americans were angry because promises were not kept.

  • Britain had a large war debt from fighting the French & Indian War.

  • Colonists ignored the law and moved into newly won territory.

The first five october 15 2013

Proclamation of 1763

Questions to Answer:

3. What did the proclamation say?

  • All land west of Appalachian Mountains to the Mississippi River would be for the Native Americans.

4. So then what?

  • Settlers were mad because they’d already settled there.

  • No money given to force settlers to move.

  • Colonists continued conflicts with Native Americans.

  • Colonists ignored Britain’s taxes and rules.

The proclamation of 1763

The Proclamation of 1763

  • This policy created a line along the crest of the Appalachian Mountains designed to keep peace with Native Americans.

  • No British or colonial settlers were to settle west of that line. Any settlers already west of that line were to leave.

  • Many northern colonists felt the line only protected the Indians and limited their access to the Ohio River territory.

  • Georgia’s Treaty of Augusta of 1763 opened Georgia land for settlement between the Ogeechee and Savannah rivers. This was not west of the proclamation line.

  • Georgia indirectly benefited from the Proclamation. Settlers from Virginia and the Carolinas who could no longer settle across the Appalachian Mountains chose Georgia!

How Did This Affect Georgia?

The first five october 15 2013

The Proclamation Line of 1763

The first five october 15 2013

  • Georgia was different from the other colonies in several ways.

Georgia was the youngest colony, had the smallest population, and it had no political structure = It was still ruled and protected by Britain (A.K.A. Royal Colony).

  • It’s original treaty of 1732 had the state extending all the way to present day California!

The Treaty of Paris changed that to the Mississippi River.

The sugar and stamp acts

The Sugar and Stamp Acts

  • The Sugar Act of 1764 enforced taxes on molasses imports from the West Indies, which hurt merchants and smugglers.

  • The Stamp Act of 1765 forced colonists to buy stamps on all printed materials and documents.

  • Georgians and other colonists resented a direct or “internal” tax without being able to elect their representatives.

  • This caused lobbying and protests against “taxation without representation.”

Write down 3 facts about stamp act.

Organized protests

Organized Protests

  • Georgia sent no representatives to a “Stamp Act Congress” in New York City during the summer of 1765. Colonists met in New York to decide what to do about the Stamp Act.

  • The Sons of Liberty formed in Savannah, and held angry demonstrations against the Stamp Act.

  • By 1766, Georgia was the only colony to sell the stamps so that harvested rice could be shipped. Many Georgians and protesters from other colonies resented this.

  • Parliament canceled the Stamp Act in 1766 but not before threats of violence in Georgia had taken place.

More taxes

More Taxes

  • Other taxes, including the Townshend Acts of 1767, taxed goods coming into the colonies.

  • Georgians met in Savannah to pass resolutions against the Acts.

  • South Carolinians began a boycott which meant they refused to buy most British-made goods.

  • After Great Britain repealed the Townshend taxes, except the tax on tea, many colonists only drank untaxed tea that was smuggled in.

The speaker controversy

The Speaker Controversy

  • Georgia’s Commons House of Assembly elected Noble Wimberly Jones as its speaker.

  • Jones had been a leader of the Sons of Liberty during the Stamp Act protests.

  • Georgia Governor James Wright would not approve Jones as speaker due to Jones’ role with the Sons of Liberty.

  • Wright tried to do his job and support the British government while also urging the government to change policies the colonists did not like.

So what will lead to rebellion?

  • Colonists still wanted more land and to move west.

  • Land companies wanted to get the land to sell.

  • Native Americans did not like being told what to do and where to go.

  • No one kept their promises and England breaks both the proclamation and treaty within a few years.

  • Colonists decide they want to self-govern and that King George III is taking advantage of them with all the taxes and lack of voice in their government.

Treaty of augusta

Treaty of Augusta

  • In 1763, the 3rd Royal Governor, James Wright of Georgia negotiated with the Creek Indians for more land.

  • This treaty increased the land size of Georgia.
