This is the third post in The 4 Acts That Led to the Revolutionary War Series.

The Quartering Act
There is no denying that taxation without proper representation is what set the stage for the American Revolutionary War. When the British Parliament began taxing the colonists by passing laws (The Acts) to raise more money for Britain, this put a huge hardship on the new American colonies. If you are studying about the American Revolutionary War you will want your children to learn about the Acts that led up to the war actually happening. In this series, we will cover the 4 Acts that were the springboard for the colonists to begin fighting for their independence from Britain. 

The third act we are discussing is The Quartering Act.

Britain had sent more British troops to colonial North America after the French and Indian War to protect the colonies against any future threats from the remaining French and Indians. The Quartering Act was passed in March 24, 1765. This act forced the American colonists to house and feed these British soldiers who were serving in America. The colonists were ordered to provide for the basic needs of the soldiers and to provide them with bedding, cooking utensils, firewood, candles and beer!  

The colonists were angered that they were forced to open their homes to these soldiers with no compensation for it. They were being taxed to pay for the provisions and barracks for the army that they thought was unnecessary during peacetime and an army that they feared might be used against them. This act only made the tension between the British and the colonists even worse, and was yet another springboard to the Revolutionary War.
