Best Answer

The Quartering Act, which originated in the British Parliament in colonial times, ordered American colonists to house and feed British soldiers. There were two versions of the act, in 1765 and 1774. Neither was popular and in fact, increasingly, the American colonists resented these laws and sought ways to circumvent them; most state legislatures did in fact ignore or refuse to comply with them. These acts contributed to the belief on the part of the colonists that a revolution was necessary, in order to become independent from unfair British laws.
