To Marylanders Who Served Here

Col. Tench Tilghman, Confidential Aide to Washington, who wrote:—-
—"formerly of my family - in every action (of) the main army - often refused his pay - left as fair reputation as ever belonged to human character"—.






The Two Maryland Brigades

Maj. Gen. John Sullivan Brig. · Gen. William Smallwood
1st Reg. Col. John H. Stone · 5th Reg. Col. William Richardson
2nd Reg. Col. Thomas Price · 6th Reg. Col. Otho H. Williams
3rd Reg. Col. Mordecai Gist · 7th Reg. Col. John Gunby
4th Reg. Col. Josiah C. Hall · Reg. of Col. Moses Hazen
Artillery:- Capt. Wm. Brown's Co. and Capt. Richard Dorsey's Co.

And as Washington wrote,—-"the men-"
"— without clothes to cover their nakedness - blankets to lie upon - without shoes - their marches traced by blood from their feet - through frost and snow - without house or hut - or provisions - submitting without murmur —"
