The Road to Independence Rebellion that made a  new  nation The British government, fearing a series of Indian wars, believed that the lands should  be opened on a more gradual basis. Restricting movement was also a way of ensuring  royal control over existing settlements before allowing the formation of new ones. The  Royal Proclamation of 1763 reserved all the western territory between the Allegheny  Mountains, Florida, the Mississippi River, and Quebec for use by Native Americans.  Thus the Crown attempted to sweep away every western land claim of the 13 colonies  and to stop westward expansion. Although never effectively enforced, this measure, in  the eyes of the colonists, constituted a high-handed disregard of their fundamental right  to occupy and settle western lands.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
