Martial law in the United States
Martial law is the temporary imposition of direct military control of normal civil functions or suspension of civil law by a government, especially in response to a temporary emergency where civil forces are overwhelmed, or in an occupied territory.

Martial law in the United States refers to times in United States history in which in a region, state, city, or the whole United States was placed under the control of a military body.

In each state, the governor has the power to impose martial law within the borders of the state. The martial law concept in the United States is closely tied to the right of habeas corpus , which is, in essence, the right to a hearing and trial on lawful imprisonment, or more broadly, the supervision of law enforcement by the judiciary.
