The Quartering Act was a series of laws, which commanded local governments of American colonies to aid the British soldiers with housing and food. The reason why this act was passed is primarily due to the result of the French and Indian war, which had been the establishment of such a faction that led to an increase in defense costs in America. With this in mind, colonists would be upset as the entirety of the act had been useless at the time since colonists never had issues until the British soldiers arrived. In fact, many colonists were spending taxes for provisions and barracks for the army and some had been competing against them because of how many soldiers were taking away some of the colonist's opportunities. Overall, the reaction wasn't so pleasant, and many began to question if Britain had done this for their financial gain, which led colonists to envision the true reality.
Ha, feels good to rule over these colonists!
I know right?
It seems to be them.
Something called the Quartering Act, bud.
What are YOU doing here?
Essentially, what's yours is ours!
Nah, you're not taking our supplies and place of sleep.
Sorry, but I don't make the rules.
Great, another worthless decision from the Parliament.
