I could use some help identifying this uniform. Where, who and how old? Thanks

That "5" and the motto on the cap device lead me to believe that this uniform was worn by a man in the 5th Maryland Infantry. Based on the tar bucket cap, I would assume that it dates to the turn of the 20th century.

Per Albert's button book, the buttons are Maryland National Guard, 5th Regiment. Also states this regiment "represented Maryland in the Centennial Legion in the great military parade, Philadelphia, July 4, 1876."

Many thanks to both of you. I have re-posted the pictures using the information you gave me in the title bar, hoping to find out a little more.
