Maryland Veterans.

The Maryland ex-Confederates, who came in near the end of the line, received a full share of praise and plaudits. General Bradley T. Johnson and staff, on horseback, headed this section, and the United States Naval Band led the veterans, who numbered about 1,200.

The veterans arrived here early in the morning on two special trains and were met by the First regiment.

This body, the largest in the procession, embraces the following: The Society of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States in the State of Maryland; the Association of the Maryland Line; Beneficial Association of the Maryland Line; the Murray Confederate [286] Association, composed of survivors of Company H, First Maryland, Company A, Second Maryland infantry, commanded by the gallant Captain William H. Murray, who was killed at Gettysburg; the Baltimore Light Artillery Association. General Bradley T. Johnson is president of the first three associations, and J. McKenney White of the Murray Association.

The veterans of the Fifth Maryland, referred to above, arrived early in the morning by the West Point route and attracted considerable attention marching through the street. They brought Southern's band with them. There are three companies, under Colonel Henry D. Loney.
