Cox v. Wood
Argued April 17, 18, 1918
Decided May 6, 1918
247 U.S. 3
Congress may conscript for military duty in a foreign country; the militia clause is not a limitation upon the war power. Selective Draft Law Cases, 245 U. S. 366, followed.
Passages in appellant's brief are found scandalous and impertinent, but it is deemed unnecessary to strike them from the files.
The case is stated in the opinion.
