  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    The right to due process of law.  An American citizen's protection from the deprivation of life, liberty, or property without due process of law--fair and open judicial proceedings, also known as habeas corpus--is enshrined primarily in the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution.  Ignoring the right has proven to be a common executive action during times of war.  Lincoln's decision came after groups of Marylanders disrupted rail transport and attacked soldiers en route to Washington D.C.  Suspect citizens throughout the state were arrested and detained without trial.  The Supreme Court ordered Lincoln to reverse his position.  Lincoln ignored them for nearly a year before walking back his actions.
