Excerpt from The First Maryland Campaign: An Address by the Brig. Gen'l Bradley T. Johnson, Delivered February 22, 1886, at the Fourth Annual Reunion of the Association of the Maryland Line, at Oratorio Hall, Baltimore, MD Many descendants of leaders of the Revolution in the Northern States sympathized with the South - some of them actually bore arms for the Confederacy. In Maryland not a single historic family that I can recall but was represented in our army by almost all of its arms-bearing youth. Howard, Carroll, Tilghman, Goldsborough, Holliday, Johnson, Stone, Chase, Dent, Bowie, were all there in force. The Colonel, commanding the Maryland Line, in the Army of Northern Virginia, mustered to his ﬂag twenty-nine kinsmen. The same faith in honor, the same devotion to liberty, that actu ated the sires under Smallwood at Long Island, under Williams at Eutaw, and under Howard at Cowpens, inspired their descendants in the Valley campaign, at First and Second Coal Harbor, and at Gettysburg. Therefore, proud of our efforts to maintain the principles for which our ancestors fought, after the war was over, we have formed this Association to perpetuate our comradeship, to assist our desti tute and to aid in transmitting the truth to history.
