The Association of the Maryland line was organized last summer in Baltimore, and “all persons who were citizens of Maryland, on April 19th, 1861, and who subsequently were duly commissioned, or mustered into the military or naval service of the Confederate States, and served honorably therein,” are eligible to membership.

The following officers were elected July 22nd: President, Brigadier-General Bradley T. Johnson. Board of Governors: Major-General I. R. Trimble; Brigadier-General George H. Steuart; Lieutenant-Colonel Jas. R. Herbert; Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Carter Smith; Captain Jno. W. Torsch; Captain McHenry Howard: Lieutenant W. P. Zollinger; Sergeant Wm. H. Pope; Private Ridgley Howard; Private George C. Jenkins; Private Frederick Marston. Corresponding Secretary, Surgeon Jno. N. Monmonier. Recording Secretary, Captain Geo. W. Booth. Treasurer, Private Lamar Hollyday.

The Association is proceeding vigorously to carry out its objects, the chief of which (besides its social and benevolent features) are “to collect, preserve and perpetuate all such evidence as can be found, of the services of the Maryland Line in the Army of Northern Virginia, and of all other Marylanders in the military and naval service of the Confederate States, and to make a complete record of their names and achievements, so as to present to posterity the evidence of the honorable service of every Maryland man who fought under the Confederate flag, on land or sea.”

We desire to commend most heartily these objects to the imitation of similar organizations elsewhere. Many of our Confederate Associations have “a good time generally” at their “reunions and banquets,” but they fail to make any practical provision for writing and preserving their history.
