  • Note: I think this battalion returned at some point in March.  It probably had returned by March 20, when the 2nd and 4th Maryland Batteries were consolidated.  Robert J. Trout’s book backs up the March 20, 1865 date.17,18
  • Note: The 4th Maryland Battery was consolidated into this battery on March 20, 1865.  However, that unit had been forced to turn over its guns.  As of March 20, the combined unit had no cannon.  I am unsure if this situation ever changed.19,20
