"This Land Is My Land" Between 1763 And 1789, The Use And Control Of The Frontier Regions Presented Problems To Both The British And The Americans.

719 words - 3 pages

During the years between 1763 and 1789 Great Britain and America encountered much difficulty while trying to claim control over the frontier regions west of the Appalachian Mountains. However, their struggle for supremacy over the land was not new by any stretch; Britain and America had been battling one another to dominate the lands from the time before the American Revolution through the time up until the Critical Period. Their ongoing contest and lust for more land eventually produced problem after problem and greatly affected all attempts, British and American, at controlling the wild frontier.One of the earliest problems faced by both parties was the fact that the Native Americans were already settled in the land the newcomers were trying to claim, thus, posing problems which eventually led to border disputes.

Britain was trying to protect the settlers, but it was not possible if they were scattered all across the countryside. The Americans did not take this lightly; they were upset that people over 3,000 miles away were dictating where they could and could not live, so they rebelled and took their chances with living on the frontier.After the American Revolution, many of the colonies had claimed enormous amounts of land west of the Proclamation line. Virginia, Connecticut, and Massachusetts held the largest claims out of the thirteen. Many of the smaller states did not react very positively to the three states' claims and one of them, Maryland, decided to do something about it. As a state with no land claims, she downright refused to ratify the Articles of Confederation until all states ceded their land claims back to the government....
