The Maryland Charter of 1632 empowered
Lord Baltimore to raise troops to put down insur-
rection or rebellion and subdue enemies of the
province. Since that time, the training, organiza-
tion, maintenance, and administration of the
Maryland Militia have been an integral part of State
government. The present military establishment of
Maryland conforms to Title 32 of the U.S. Code
and regulations issued pursuant thereto, and to the
Militia Law of Maryland (Code 1957, Art. 65).
The Adjutant General heads the Military
Department and exercises powers and duties under
the Militia Law of Maryland. The Military Depart-
ment prepares all State forms and records required
for militia use and the reports and returns required
by the federal government. Service records of all

Impendent Agencies/527

officers and enlisted persons who have served or are
serving in the Maryland National Guard are main-
tained by the Military Department as well.
The Adjutant General is responsible for the
budget of the Military Department and is the cus-
todian of all State and federal property used by the
organized militia. The Adjutant General maintains
all State-owned armories located in Maryland and
all other properties that may be occupied, pur-
chased, or leased by the Military Department. The
Adjutant General regulates the use of such facilities;
applications for their use should be made to the
Adjutant General. In addition, the Adjutant
General is responsible for the administration, train-
ing, and supply of approximately 9,500 National
Guardsmen, including 1,519 full-time employees
(253 State paid; 1,266 federally paid).
As commander-in-chief of the militia, die Gover-
nor has the power to organize and maintain addi-
tional military forces, known as the Maryland Scare
Guard, which are separate and distinct from the
National Guard. Such forces are composed of of-
ficers, commissioned or assigned, and all able-
bodied citizens of the State who volunteer and are
accepted for service. They may be ordered to active
duty in the State by the Governor whenever the
National Guard has been called into the military
service of the United States. Members of the State
Guard are uniformed as prescribed by the Gover-
nor, who also may reduce or disband such forces.
The Adjutant General is appointed by the
Governor with Senate advice and consent. The
Assistant Adjutant General for Army and the Assis-
tant Adjutant General for Air are both appointed
by the Governor (Const., Art. IX, sec. 2).

Formerly under the Department of Public
Safety and Correctional Services, the State Emer-
gency Management and Civil Defense Agency was
restructured as the Maryland Emergency Manage-
ment Agency in 1989 when it was made part of the
Military Department (Chapter 674, Acts of 1989).
The Agency derives its main purpose from the
Federal Civil Defense Act of 1950 (EL. 920) as
amended. The act provides for a civil defense system
to protect life and property from attack and offer
relief and assistance to people struck by disasters
other than those caused by enemy attack.
Known as the Maryland Civil Defense Agency
from 1950 to 1970, the Agency, in its earliest years,
was concerned primarily with statewide nuclear
attack preparedness and related missions (Chapter
