How to survive martial law

Date: July 15, 2016

Could martial law ever really be implemented in the United States? Would the American people, by and large, accept it, and if so, under what circumstances, and for how long?

The answers to these questions vary, of course, and in fact are purely speculative based at this point, because the last time the United States experienced it was during the Civil War, when the military (hence the term “martial”) was deployed to restore order.

But that period of time is instructive because though “times were different,” the very real national emergency created by civil conflict then would be no less dire now, meaning modern politicians and presidents would likely respond in much the same way as Abraham Lincoln did (he suspended habeas corpus, created military districts ruled by military governors, and spent money to raise military forces without congressional approval, among other actions – all of which were eventually upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court).
