The Quartering Act of 1765. A significant cause of heated unrest in the American colonies, this Act stipulated that the expense of quartering the British army in North America was the responsibility of the colonies; but the colonies refused to comply. The controversy over this Act led to the suspension of the New York Assembly in 1767 (see lot 182).
