The proclamation, issued by the British government, prohibited colonists from settling west of the Appalachian Mountains, in an effort to avoid conflicts with Native American tribes. This angered colonists who had hoped to expand their land holdings and profit from westward expansion. The proclamation also increased tensions between the colonists and the British government, as it was seen as an infringement on their rights and freedoms. These tensions eventually led to the American Revolution.

Washington's leadership and military expertise were crucial for the success of the revolution, but he was not the sole leader of the movement.
