EARLY MILITARY SCHOOL / HONNOR GUARD OR WHAT?

Recommended Posts

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."
