3rd Amendment

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.


What is the main point of the Third Amendment?

The Third Amendment is intended to protect citizens’ rights to the ownership and use of their property without intrusion by the government.


This amendment means that no solider can be quartered, or be placed to live in, people’s homes without their permission. For example, if soldiers came to your home, they could only live there if you gave them permission.
