3rd Amendment Artwork

"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."
- 3rd Amendment of the United States Constitution

The Third Amendment says that troops cannot be quartered in homes at all during peacetime, and only as prescribed by law during wartime. However they can be quartered into homes during peacetime if the Owner gives those soldiers permission to. Below is a piece of art that I came across when I searched for artwork on Google.

    Third Amendment by Shannon

The image illustrates two figures, one being a lady and the other being a male soldier. A house is in the background and the two individuals are in the foreground. The soldier says to the woman, "I am going to stay in your house." The woman replies "No!" Obviously this is a work of a child, and I find it to be a good thing. This shows that children somewhere in the U.S. are being taught what the amendments are and actually have an understanding of what they mean. This artwork is juvenile but clearly expresses the meaning of the Third Amendment.
