About the Society

From the first militiamen to set foot in the Maryland colony in 1634 to the gallant men and women serving in today's armed forces, Maryland has a rich and exciting military legacy. The Maryland Military Historical Society exists to see that that legacy is preserved, perpetuated and kept available to the public.

Formed in 1982 to preserve the history, heritage, and memory of Maryland's organized militia, the Society was the driving force behind the establishment of what is now the Maryland Museum of Military History. While the militia remains a prime focus of the Society, it seeks to preserve the memory of the military accomplishments of all Marylanders, regardless of branch of service.

In furtherance of this mission, the Society provides dedicated support to the Maryland Museum of Military History and the Maryland Historical Research Center through donations and volunteerism. The Society also conducts educational visits to sites of significance to Maryland military history.

Our members include distinguished citizens from all walks of life. From current and former members of our nation's military to educational professionals to successful businessmen, the Society is home to anyone with a love for military history in Maryland.

The Maryland Military Historical Society, Inc. is non-profit charitable organization recognized under section 501(c)(3) of the federal tax code. Donations to the Society are deductible for federal income tax purposes. Consult with your tax advisor for more details.
