THIS company was organized at Snow Hill, Worcester County, Md.,
October 15, 1862, to serve three years. It was mustered out of
service June 30, 1865, in accordance with orders from the War
Department.

This company was recruited, in accordance with authority
granted Captain G. W. P. Smith, by the Secretary of War, "to
raise a company for special duty on the Eastern Shore of Mary-
land and Virginia, unless the exigencies of the service should require it to be attached
to some regiment for general service."

The company was used to prevent the disloyal element in the section of the coun-
try in which it scouted from organizing bands of recruits for the Confederate army ; to
protect the loyal element, resident therein ; to keep a lookout for and capture blockade
runners ; in fact, to perform such duties over a wide section that would otherwise have
necessitated the maintenance of large infantry detachments.

During its term of service the company was stationed at Snow Hill, Newton, Point
Lookout, Eastville, Drummondtown, Salisbury, Relay House, Barnesville.

It was not the fortune of this command to engage in any skirmish or battle, never-
theless it performed its duty honorably, under the orders of superior authority.
No casualties have been reported by. this command.
