Third Amendment IQ
The Third Amendment
The Third Amendment defines the relationship between citizens and the military. It says that private citizens don’t have to provide housing for members of the armed forces. The basis for this right comes from our days prior to the Revolutionary War, when colonists were expected to provide living quarters to the English soldiers.
