In 1888 the old U.S. arsenal in Pikesville was opened to care for needy Confederate veterans residing in Maryland. This citadel of charity was managed by the Association of the Maryland Line and supported by nearly every Confederate Veterans’ group in the state.
The heart of this book is the 212 biographical sketches compiled in 1900 of men who resided at the home. A history of the arsenal, the Soldier’s Home, Confederate Memorial Day and the Confederate Women’s Home are also covered with numerous illustrations of membership badges and ribbons.
