Articles of Confederation
No Soldiers Quartered in Time of Peace:
Article 6: Paragraph 2:
No vessels of war shall be kept up in time of peace by any State except such number only shall be deemed necessary by the United States in congress assembled for the defense of each State or its trade. Nor shall any body of forces be kept up by any state in time of peace except such number only as in the judgement of the United States in congress assembled shall be deemed requisite to garrison the forts necessary for the defense of each State; But every State shall always keep up a well regulated and disciplined militia sufficiently armed and accoutered and shall provide and constantly have ready for use in public store and due number of filed pieces and tents and a proper quantity of arms, ammunition and camp equipment.
No State shall engage in any war without the consent of the United States in congress assembled unless such State be actually invaded by enemies or shall have received certain advice of a resolution being formed by some nation of Indians to invade such State and the danger is so imminent as to not admit a delay till the United States in Congress assembled can be consulted; nor shall any State grant permission to any ships or vessels of war, nor letters of marque and reprisal except it be after a declaration of war by the United States in congress assembled and then only against the kingdom or State and the subjects thereof against which war has been declared and under such regulation as shall be established by the United States in congress assembled unless such State shall be infested by pirates in which case vessels of war may be fitted out for that occasion and kept so long as the danger shall continue or until United States in congress assembled shall determine otherwise.
