Robinson proudly noted

Post  taixyz1992 on Sun Jan 09, 2011 3:04 am

Robinson proudly noted that by January 1, 1863, a divided Kentucky had still managed to send 44,000 soldiers fifty-one regiments to aid the Union cause.[8] At the same time, he lamented what he perceived as poor treatment of the state as disloyal by the Federal government.[8] He cited examples such as the declaration of martial law in the Commonwealth and the suspension of the right of habeas corpus for its citizens.[8] He answered President Lincoln's contention "that military necessity is not to be measured by Constitutional limits" by warning "If military necessity is not to be measured by Constitutional limits, we are no longer a free people."[8]

On completion of his term, Robinson supported his eventual successor, Thomas E. Bramlette.[9] The constitutional questions Robinson raised during his administration shaped much of the political debate for Bramlette's term
