The Fifth Maryland.

This crack regiment, one of the handsomest military organizations in the country, was the leading feature of the procession. It was the largest uniformed body in line, and the dress-suit is very clean, nice-looking. Applause was showered on it from all quarters, and it was the ‘observed of all observers’ throughout the march.

They were led by their splendid band of thirty-five pieces, and drum-corps of twenty-eight pieces. F. Czarnosky is drum-major, and A. Itzel the leader of this great musical combination.

Colonel William A. Boykin was in command, and was accompanied by his staff—Lieutenant-Colonel Frank Markoe, Major Lawrason Riggs, Captain William Gilmor Hoffman, Jr., adjutant; Major William H. Crimm, surgeon; Captain Robert J. Miller, quartermaster; Captain E. C. Johnson, commissary; Captain J. R. Trimble, assistant surgeon; Captain B. T. Stokes, ordnance officer; Captain Columbus O'D. Lee, inspector rifle practice; Captain S. Sterritt McKim, paymaster.

There were ten companies, as follows: Company A, Captain William D. Robinson, 45 men; Company B, Captain R. Dorsey Coale, 40 men; Company C, Captain Robert P. Brown, 60 men; Company D, Captain George C. Cole, 40 men; Company E, Captain Harry [271] Pennington, 45 men; Company F, Captain J. Frank Suppler, 55 men; Company G, First-Lieutenant J. Frank Phillips, commanding, 45 men; Company H, Captain Charles F. Albers, 40 men; Company I, Captain N. Lee Goldsborough, 35 men; Company K, Captain Robert Riddell Brown, 35 men.

Bell, Hospital-Steward W. B. Moneson, Right-General-Guide Sergeant W. S. Lilly, Left-General-Guide-Sergeant Horace McEldery.
