All I want is to be able to come home to a nice warm place to sleep.
The Quartering Act is officially a law.
The Quartering Act
Yay! I am so happy for the solders!
NO MORE QUARTERING ACT!!
This scene is showing when the solders had nowhere to live. They were all stranded on the streets and they never had any food or any comfy place to sleep. They were suffering and needed help from others.
I do not want to take care of you.
Hello! Thank you for helping me out!!
On March 24, 1765, the government made a new law called the Quartering Act. The Quartering Act required colonists to provide the solders candles, firing, bedding, cooking utensils, salt, vinegar, and beer or cider.
Yum! Thank you for cooking me some delicious dinner.
You are eating all of our food. I don't like this law, and I do not want to be your maid.
The colonists were not happy at all with The Quartering Act. They did not think it was fair that they had to spend money on strangers they didn't even know. This scene shows how the people in the town were protesting against the new law.
Hello everybody! From now on there will be no more Quartering Act!
This scene shows the solders meeting the colonists they are staying with. The colonists are still very mad. They do not want to pay and take care of strangers.
This scene shows how the people in the town had to just suck it up and take care of the solders. It was a law, and the colonists had to follow the laws whether they liked it or not.
The government saw and realized how many people were frustrated everyday. All the colonists were upset with the government because they did not like The Quartering Act since it was unfair that they had to pay for the solders. The Parliament decided to get rid of The Quartering Act on March 24, 1767.
