The Quartering Acts

The first Quartering act stated that troops could only be quarted in barracks and if there was not enough space in the barracks, then they were to be quartered in public houses and inns and were to be provided with provisions.


The second act allowed a governor to house soldiers in other buildings, such as barns, inns, and other unoccupied structures, if suitable quarters were not provided, but soldiers did not need to be given provisions.
