Brief History

The 3rd Battery, Maryland Artillery Company was organized at Richmond, Virginia, in January, 1862 and was captured at Vicksburg. After being exchanged, the officers and men were consolidated with the Stephens Georgia Light Artillery[1]


Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.
