MARYLAND
SIXTH INFANTRY
(Three Years)

Sixth Infancy. - Cols., George R. Howard, John W. Horn; Lieut.-Cols., Joseph C. Hill, William A. McKellip; Maj., Clif- ton Prentiss. The organization of this regiment was commenced at Baltimore on Aug. 12, 1862, and was completed on Sept. 8, at which time it was mustered into the United States service for three years. It was made up as follows: Companies A and C from Carroll county; B, E and G from Cecil county; D from Frederick county; H from Washington county; K from Queen Anne's county; and F and I from the city of Baltimore. On Sept. 20, 1862, it left Baltimore to join the Army of the Potomac, and was as- signed to the Maryland brigade, then a part of the 8th corps. Subsequently it was with the 1st and 3d brigades, 2nd division of the 8th corps, 2nd brigade 3d division, 3d corps, and 2nd brigade, 3d division, 6th corps, to which command it was trans- ferred on March 23, 1864, and served with that corps until mus- tered out. During the operations in the Shenandoah Valley and on the upper Potomac it was constantly on duty, skirmishing al- most daily with the enemy. It was in the battle of Winchester, when Lee's whole army tried to capture Milroy's division, and fought with valor at the Wilderness, Spottsylvania Court House, Cold Harbor, Fisher's Hill, the Opequan, Cedar Creek, Wapping Heights, Petersburg and Sailor's creek, and was at Appomattox when Gen Lee surrendered. Immediately after that event the 6th corps and the cavalry commanded by Gen. Custer were ordered to Danville, Va., to intercept Gen. Johnston, who was supposed to be marching to the relief of Lee. This forced march was use- less, for Johnston, upon hearing of Lee's surrender, capitu- lated to Gen. Sherman at Goldsboro, N. C. The 6th corps then went to Washington, where it arrived too late to take part in the grand review and was reviewed separately by the president. While in the service the 6th Md. suffered a loss of 128 killed, 233 wounded, and 108 who died of disease. It marched 1,751 miles, traveled by rail 575 miles and by water 577 miles. It was mustered out on June 20, 1865, and was disbanded at Balti- more a few days later. Source: The Union Army, vol. 2 Be sure to add me to your favorites list!
