1. The Second Maryland Brigade Marker
Inscription. Like all the brigades at Jockey Hollow, the Marylanders faced shortages of supplies and provisions. Baron von Steuben, the armyís inspector general, noted their condition in January 1780:

“The Cloathing is in very bad order for want of Mending. Shirts and Shoes are very much wanting especially in the three Regiments of the Second Brigade; where great Numbers of the Men are wholly Destitude of those articles.”
 
Erected by Morristown National Historical Park, National Park Service.
