United States (United States) (search for this): article 12
We live under a Constitution. That Constitution was made for war as well as peace. Under that constitution we have civil laws and military laws; laws for the civil authorities and laws for the military. The first age to be found in the Statutes at large, and the latter in the Rules and Articles of War. But in this country there is no such thing as martial law, and cannot be until the Constitution is set aside, if such an evil day shall ever come upon us.

A British Queen (Anne) was once urged by the Emperor of Russia to punish one of her officers for what his Majesty considered an act of indignity to his Ambassador to her Court, though the officer had violated no positive law. The Queen's memorable reply was that "she could inflict no punishment upon any the meanest of her subjects, unless warranted by the law of the land." This is an example you might well imitate. For I take it for granted that no one will pretend that any General in command of our armies could center upon you or anybody greater
