Brief History

The 1st Regiment, Maryland Infantry [1]

This company had been organized on the 19th of April and joined the
military of Baltimore to prevent the passage of troops through the city.

It was the first to be mustered into the service of the Confederate States at
the Point of Rocks, and consequently afterward became the senior company of
the First Maryland. Company B, commanded by Captain C. C. Edelin, was also
mustered in at the Point of Rocks on the same day — May 21, 1862.

Camp at Arlington Heights, Virgina, until July. Mustered out July 2, 1865.

See History at:  1st Maryland Infantry, CSA.

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.
