Intolerable Acts Part 4

Phineas Pollyphus, Political Historian

The final Intolerable Act dealt with all 13 Colonies and not just Massachusetts.  Not just Massachusetts.  It was called the Quartering Act.  This act said British soldiers were to be housed in private homes, in addition to empty and commercial buildings.  This was a change to an already existing Quartering Act.  The existing act stated that colonists needed to make room for soldiers in empty and commercial dwellings.  Think taverns and such.  Now soldiers were to be boarding at the actual homes of the colonists!  Right, smack-dab in their homes.
