Read the paragraph, which may contain errors or false beliefs about the Civil War: Maryland was an important state in the Civil War. Due to its location, it was the key to the North maintaining control of its capital, Washington, D.C. Maryland formed the east and north borders of the capital, and Virginia was to the west and south. Virginia was a slave state, but Maryland was free, which increased the importance of this state to the North. President Abraham Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus in 1861 to protect Maryland. As long as the Union held Maryland, Washington, D.C., would most likely be safe from Confederate troops. Which of the following statements corrects a false belief about the Civil War and would make the information in the passage more accurate? Lincoln enforced the writ of habeas corpus to prevent Confederate troops from entering Maryland. Maryland was a slave state that surrounded Washington, D.C., on the north, east, and south. Maryland was important to the Union because it surrounded the capital and because it had outlets to the sea. Virginia was a free state that surrounded Washington, D.C., on the west and south.
@Photon336 do you know it?
The last statement is false Virginia was a slave state and it contradicts info in the passage.
thank you so soo much!!!
"On April 27, 1861, the writ of habeas corpus was suspended by President Abraham Lincoln in Maryland and parts of midwestern states, including southern Indiana during the American Civil War. Lincoln did so in response to riots, local militia actions, and the threat that the border slave state of Maryland would secede from the Union, leaving the nation's capital, Washington, D.C., surrounded by hostile territory. Lincoln was also motivated by requests by generals to set up military courts to rein in "Copperheads" or Peace Democrats, and those in the Union who supported the Confederate cause."
