Which state militia? The Militia Act of 1903 defined two types of militia - the Organised Militia, and the Unorganised Militia. The Organised Militia was defined, essentially, as the National Guard. In wartime, federal control trumps state control of these troops, and state governors have no ability anymore to refuse deployment of their National Guard personnel. Some states have their own state militias, as well, known as State Guards, State Defence Forces, etc. It's generally assumed that these cannot be federalised, although something of a grey area exists here insofar as implementation of the Insurrection Act goes. Additionally, membership in one of these units does not exempt persons in them from being drafted into the federal military.
