Taxes

From parliament Ryan Diaz and King George III

The Quartering Act of 1765

During the french and Indian it is required of the colonies to house British soldiers in barracks provided by the colonies. If the barracks are too small to house all the soldiers, then localities are to accommodate the soldiers in local inns, livery stables, ale houses, victualling houses, and the houses of sellers of wine. Should there still be soldiers without accommodation after all such publick houses were filled, the colonies are then required to take, hire and make fit for the reception of his Majesty’s forces, such and so many uninhabited houses, outhouses, barns, or other buildings as shall be necessary.
