    Maryland did not secede.

    There were eleven States that did secede - South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina.

    Sometimes books do make mistakes.

    A is the correct answer. Not sure why you got it wrong.

    If A had been false, meaning that Maryland had joined the confederacy, then the capitol would have been surrounded entirely by the Confederacy since Maryland is north of the capitol.

    D is incorrect. Texas joined the Confederacy

    If that was the exact question, you were correct. Maryland was not part of the Confederate States of America.

    South Carolina seceded on December 20, 1860; Alabama seceded on January 11, 1861; and Texas seceded on February 1, 1861.

    Whoever told you that you were wrong, was in fact wrong.

    Maryland was not in the Confederacy because Lincoln had the legislature arrested so they could not vote on succession.

    So that the North had FIVE slave states, Maryland, Kentucky, Missouri, West virginia, and Delaware.

    Not all the slave states were in the confederacy.

    The Confederacy was the SOUTH (led by Robert E. Lee) all the Southern states

    The Union was the NORTH (led by Ulysses S. Grant) all the Northern states
