New law

During the Civil War, the entire country was placed under Martial Law. People were arrested in Vernon Co. and sent to prison in Illinois, just for toasting Jeff Davis in a bar or saying they hated Lincoln. Congress passed a law in 1878 to prevent the Military from being used as police inside the U.S. for that reason. This law would revoke that law.
