        A Letter from George Washington to William Crawford

        Relations between Great Britain, its North American colonies, and the Native Americans were often difficult. The British wanted to solve these problems so they could reduce the number of British troops needed and thereby reduce expenses. One attempt to bring peace was the Proclamation of 1763. This edict created a line of settlement beyond which colonists were forbidden to settle. A transcription is included below in Support Materials.
