Origin of the “Old Line” State(at least the most plausible)
In 1776, all regiments from the colonies were referred to as “Lines”. The Maryland Line will be forever associated with their heroic sacrifices at the first major battle of the Revolutionary War and the ensuing defense, covering the rear of the Continental Army as it retreated. The war could have ended that day had it not been for the “Maryland Line”. References to the “Old Line” are a tribute to those colonial regiments of regulars who earned the reputation as saviors of the Continental Army, as well as the cause for independence.
