INDEPENDENT COMPANY INFANTRY,
"PATAPSCO GUARDS."

THE Patapsco Guards Infantry, Maryland Volunteers, an Independent
Company of Infantry, was organized at Ellicott's Mills, Mary-
land, September 25, 1861, to serve three years. On the expira-
tion of its term of service the original men, except veterans,
were mustered out and the organization, composed of veterans
and recruits, retained in service until August 17, 1865, when it
was mustered out of the military service of the United States
by reason of the close of the war and by orders of the War Department.

The Patapsco Guards performed guard and provost duty at Ellicott's Mills, Md., and
at York, Harrisburg and Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. During the Gettysburg cam-
paign it took part in a skirmish with the enemy at Wrightsville, Pennsylvania, June
28, 1863, and again, during the McCauseland raid, near Chambersburg, Pa., July 30, 1864.
The casualties from death in this independent company during its term of ser-
vice was four enlisted men, who died of disease.
