“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. 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.”  

Maj. William W. Goldsborough ~ Gettysburg, July 3, 1863

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 “Company D" Second Maryland Infantry as it sets out to honor the men of the original unit. 

  Our group, Company D 2nd Maryland Infantry, is based out of Baltimore, Maryland. We are a unit within the Independent Greys organization. Our membership spans multiple states. Our annual event schedule includes living history demonstrations for the National Park Service at various battlefields including Gettysburg. We are also well established with many other historical locations and event venues. Our impression is based on a real research which can be viewed in the “Library” of this website. Everything we do is supported by research and documentation. Our purpose is to recreate the best and most accurate 2nd Maryland Infantry impression possible. We strive to educate from a soldier’s perspective and teach about Maryland’s role during the American Civil War. Our goal is to make history fun and exciting to learn for both the public and our membership. We are always looking to recruit new members. Check us out and see if we are the right group for you!
