HISTORY & ROSTER OF MARYLAND VOLUNTEERS, WAR OF 1861-5 Prepared Under The Authority of The General Assembly Of Maryland Hall of Records, Annapolis, Maryland
The Sixth Regiment of Infantry, Maryland Volunteers, known as " The Fighting Sixth," was one of the two Maryland regiments (the First Regiment of Infantry being the other) classified by Colonel Fox as one of the three hundred fighting regiments of the war who suffered the severest losses.
The Sixth Regiment had certainly a very brilliant record, and during a long period of its service was a component part of the Sixth Army Corps, which rendered such splendid service to the Union cause, both under Sheridan in the Shenandoah Valley campaign, and under Grant in the Wilderness and through to the end. Colonel John W. Horn, of this regiment, was promoted brigadier-general, and was afterwards at the head of several Maryland institutions, displaying rare executive ability in their management.
