1ST Maryland Infantry REGIMENT
Maryland to the Front!
Company D, 1st Maryland Infantry Regiment is based out of Baltimore, Maryland. Co.D 1st MD Inf Regt is an early war impression within the Independent Greys organization. Our annual event schedule includes living history demonstrations for the National Park Service at various battlefields. We are also well established with many other historical locations and event venues. Our impression is based on real research which can be viewed via the left hand menu of this page. Our purpose is to recreate the best and most accurate 1st Maryland Infantry Regiment (1861-62) impression possible. We strive to educate from a soldier’s perspective and teach about Maryland’s role during the American Civil War.
“We attacked the enemy on their right flank and made a complete rout. Beauregard said, “the Maryland Brigade, as he called it, arrived in the nick of time and saved the day”. The enemy retired precipitately.”
