One more key point:
"President Lincoln had declared the freedom of the slaves as
a war measure, but when the war ended, the effect of the
proclamation was ended ...."
War measures no longer had any force or effect,
after the war ended. The same was true, after
World Wars I and II.
The Civil War ended in 1865, ladies and gentlemen.
And with it ended all war measures, of whatever kind.
Those of you who are trying to maintain
some kind of perpetual U.S. military authority
over all 50 states, are sadly mistaken.
Your attempts to sustain this bogus martial law
are, frankly, ludicrous, in the face of
authorities like Dyett v. Turner. There are
more such authorities, but this one is quite
sufficient to relegate your arguments
to the scrap heap of American history.
