Welcome to the website for the Maryland Regimental Artillery Association, Inc.  We hope you will find our site of assistance in learning more about the great history and tradition of artillery units in the State of Maryland.

Maryland artillery units have a long and proud history going back to the War for Independence, during which units of Maryland cannoneers served in both the local militia and in the Continental Army.  Later, artillery from the Maryland Militia fought to defend our Nation's Capital and the City of Baltimore in the War of 1812 and fought with valor in the Mexican War.  During the Civil War, Maryland cannoneers fought with courage and distinction for both Union and Confederate causes.  On December 29, 1915, the 110th Field Artillery was first formally constituted as the Light Artillery Battery, known as “Battery A.”  The unit expanded to a Battalion in July, 1917, and mustered into federal service on August 5, 1917 as the First Maryland Field Artillery Battalion.  The regiment was formally re-designated the 110th Field Artillery on November 27, 1917.

 

As a unit of the 29th Division, the 110th Field Artillery earned a campaign streamer in France in World War I.  During World War II, the 110th Field Artillery and 224th Field Artillery went ashore at Omaha Beach with the 29th Infantry Division and earned streamers for the Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, and Central Europe campaigns. 

 

The 2-110th FA was mobilized for homeland security in 2002 and in 2006 was mobilized for service at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  Large numbers of the unit served in Afghanistan and Iraq. 

 

On August 8, 2009, the 2-110 FA was inactivated.

 

This website is dedicated to the memory of all those Maryland artillerymen who have loyally served their State and Nation.
