Fair Justice equals Proper Government
Boston Port Bill
The Quartering Act was established to allow the British troops to take shelter in homes and Inns under the supervision of Thomas Gage, the governor. The reasoning behind some colonists views of this act astounds me. Yes, British troops are staying in the colonies. Yes, Britain is asking us, as colonists, to provide a roof over their heads. Yes, they are requesting we do what any decent, morally ethic human being would do! What is so criminal about wanting to provide shelter for every man and woman, different or alike?
