David White-

  I don't think that Bama is maintaining that Mr. Lincoln PERSONALLY arrested members of the Maryland legislature, but his minions were authorized to do so, and did.

  Perhaps this source (e pluribus unum) has some credibility:

The Provost-Marshal And The Citizen

  Part of the way down, you can read: "Many members of the Maryland legislature were also arrested on and after September 20, 1861, and confined first in Ft. McHenry, then in Ft. Lafayette, and then finally in Ft. Warren, in order to forestall the passage of an act of secession. Some of these were soon released after taking an oath of allegiance, but several were confined for months."
