“In May 1918, Montana's state anti-sedition law became the basis for an amendment to the Espionage Act of 1917 that was known as the Sedition Act. (The wording of the federal statute was almost identical to that of the Montana statute.) The new law included the language of the original Espionage Act about forbidding incitement to insubordination and further forbade virtually any criticism or disparagement whatsoever of the government, military, or flag.”
