No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
Who: The Third Amendment was introduced by James Madison.
What: This Amendment stops soldiers from living/taking over any private homes during the time of war without the owners permission.
When: The third amendment was introduced in the Constitution as the Bill Of Rights on September 5, 1789 and voted for on December 15, 1791.
Why: This amendment was announced because the British government had introduced a act called the Quartering Act during the Revolutionary War which allowed British soldiers to live in American Colonist homes temporarily. This invaded the colonist privacy and made them very mad.
How: This affects me because Amendment III says that soldiers are not allowed to take over private homes without owners consent/permission, so that protects my home from ever being taken over if a war were to happen here.
Note: The Third Amendment explains that no soldier can temporarily live in a private house without the permission of the owner, and only are they allowed to do this during the time of war.
