1. 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.
