The Quartering Acts were used by England to ensure that British troops stationed in the American colonies had adequate food and housing. The colonies were understandably reluctant to continue providing this after the French and Indian War, where British troops sometimes seized homes for quartering of troops. The second Act became part of the "Intolerable Acts" that led to the American Revolution, yet during the war the American troops relied on the same quartering provisions for housing and feeding American troops. It's even cited in the Declaration of Independence which shows how unpopular this measure was so as helpful as it might have been in the short run, it ultimately played a role in the rebellion that ended in American independence. Quartering of American troops without a homeowner's consent was ended with the 3rd Amendment to the Constitution.
