Maryland provided over 42,000 men to the Union in the Civil War. Almost 2,000 fought for the Union at Gettysburg. They were organized into three infantry regiments, a cavalry regiment, an independent cavalry company, and an artillery battery. (see the States at Gettysburg) Each of these units has a monument on the battlefield.
Maryland was a slave state that also provided several Confederate units, some of whom served at Gettysburg. There is a monument to the Second Maryland Infantry (CSA) on Culp’s Hill.
