From Ohio History Central
Although the English no longer had to contend with the French, they still faced numerous Native American tribes, including the Shawnee Indians, the Mingo Indians, the Wyandot Indians, and the Delaware Indians, among others, that were not happy with British settlers moving into the area. To prevent bloodshed and to reduce military expenses, England issued the Proclamation of 1763, which prohibited their colonists from living west of the Appalachian Mountains. A major reason the French and Indian War had been the colonists' desire for access to the fertile Ohio Country lands. This English policy partly led to the American Revolution by convincing Americans that England did not understand or have the colonists' best interests at heart.
