Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

On March 24, 1765, Parliament passed the Quartering Act, ordering the American colonies to provide housing for British soldiers in barracks, or if necessary to accommodate the soldiers in local inns, livery stables, ale houses, and the houses of sellers of wine. The popular belief that the Redcoats tossed colonists from their homes or moved into private homes was not the intent of the law or the practice. The New York colonial assembly refused to comply with the law, leading to Parliament enacting the New York Restraining Act in 1767. The Restraining Act prohibited the royal governor of New York from signing any further legislation until the assembly complied with the Quartering Act.

On March 24, 1958, Elvis Presley was conscripted into the U.S. Army.
