Bill of Rights:
Third Amendment

by Donald Burger, Attorney at Law

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.

Note: On March 24, 1765, Britain had enacted the Quartering Act, which required American colonists to provide "temporary" housing for British soldiers.
