FAQ'S
Pre-war ties were strong between Virginia and Maryland. When Virginia seceded from the Union at the start of
the Civil War, many in Maryland wanted their state to follow suit. When this did not happen, nearly 800 young
Marylanders left  the comfort and safety of their homes, crossed the Potomac River, and offered their arms to
the services of the new government in Richmond. And thus, the original 1st Maryland Regiment of Volunteer
Infantry was formed.

In 1990, a small group of reenactors in southern New England decided to pay tribute and commemorate the
lives of those on the 1st Maryland roster. Since its inception, the
new 1st Maryland Infantry has grown to be one
of the most active Confederate reenacting groups in New England, with membership reaching over
40 military
and civilian members.

Although based in the state of Connecticut, the 1st Maryland Infantry travels throughout New England and
beyond to participate in living history events, patriotic celebrations, parades and battle reenactments. With
trips to Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and other states with Civil War historical significance,
the unit also travels to these locations for social gatherings - to both study with and enjoy the company of our
members and others in the hobby. Several members of the unit have participated in the filming of Civil War
epic films such as
Gettysburg, Glory and Gods & Generals.
