Re: [TalkAntietam] Fort names
- Yes Maryland was a slave state. Although the Lincoln wanted to keep it a
northern state because of the location of the White House. Maryland had its
simpities with the south but remember that at that time when the Baltimore riot
broke out at President Street Station Lincoln locked down Baltimore and locked
up the sympathizers. Mostly at Ft. McHenry. And martial law was inforced.
