“But the little battalion of Marylanders, now reduced to about three hundred men, never wavered nor hesitated, but kept on, closing up its ranks as great gaps were torn though them by the merciless fire of the enemy in front and flank,” exclaimed Second Maryland Infantry Major W.W. Goldsborough after observing the steadfast courage of his men as they charged into the 'Slaughter Pen' on Culp's Hill at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863. “Many of the brave fellows never stopped until they had passed through the enemy’s first line or had fallen dead or wounded as they reached it.” 

The sacrifice and bravery demonstrated by the soldiers of this Confederate battalion on the final day of the Civil War's bloodiest battle exemplified the spirit of the Second Maryland Infantry during the war between the states. Now, you are invited to join the ranks of the living history organization Second Maryland “Company D,” as it sets out to honor the men of the Second Maryland Infantry.
