Coleman Yellot was also targeted for arrest, but had already fled to the Confederacy. For more information on the arrest of the Maryland legislators, see The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, volume 2, series 1, p. 563-748, especially p. 667-675.
