"The matter of the publication of the records of Maryland troops, who fought for the preservation of the Federal Union during the great Civil War from 1861 to 1865, was inaugurated by the survivors of that war, through their representative organization, the Grand Army of the Republic, Department of Maryland." A commission consisting of General L. Allison Wilmer, Adjutant-General of Maryland; Dr. James H. Jarrett, late surgeon 7th Regiment Infantry, Maryland Volunteers; and Colonel George W. F. Vernon, late Cole's Cavalry, Maryland Volunteers, compiled all data possible from incomplete records in the office of the Adjutant-General of Maryland. They then invited the active co-operation of the surviving veterans, soliciting the loan of copies of muster rolls, rosters, historical data and the advice and counsel of these veterans. The Commission made requisition, through the Governor of Maryland, upon the War Department for the missing data. The work was divided into two volumes. Volume One lists all of the troops accredited to the quota of the State of Maryland. Volume Two lists all of the sailors, marines and colored troops from Maryland who served in the Union army or navy. A brief history of each regiment, battery, company and battalion is included along with the rosters of officers and troops. While both volumes contain an individual index, in 1990 a detailed index encompassing both volumes was compiled and added as third volume.
