Maryland was represented for the Union at the Battle of Gettysburg by three infantry regiments, a cavalry regiment, an independent cavalry company, and an artillery battery. (see the States at Gettysburg) It provided over 42,000 men to the Union in the Civil War. Maryland was a slave state that also provided several Confederate units, some of whom who served at Gettysburg against their Union neighbors. None of these Confederate Maryland units raised monuments on the battlefield, but the State of Maryland monument honors the men of both sides.
