Brief History of the 3rd Maryland & Who We Are
The 3rd Maryland Volunteer Infantry Regiment was organized at Baltimore and Williamsport, MD., from June 18, 1861, to February 17, 1862, to serve three years.
On the expiration of its term of service the original members (except veterans) were mustered out and the veterans and recruits consolidated into a battalion of four companies, and remained in the military service of the United States until July 31, 1865, when it was mustered out of service by reason of closure of the Civil War and by order of the War Department.
This regiment is composed of experienced commanders and members from Holdfast: Nations at war and Prime & Load: 1776 and are transitioning into Battle Cry of Freedom. We have all been actively playing line battle games since 2017.
