“But the little battalion of Marylanders, now reduced to about three hundred men, never wavered nor hesitated, but kept on, closing up its ranks as great gaps were torn though them by the merciless fire of the enemy in front and flank. Many of the brave fellows never stopped until they had passed through the enemy’s first line or had fallen dead or wounded as they reached it.”  

Maj. William W. Goldsborough ~ Gettysburg, July 3, 1863
