Like all the brigades at Jockey Hollow, the Marylanders faced shortages of supplies and provisions. Baron von Steuben, the army's inspector general, noted their condition in January 1780:

"The Cloathing is in very bad order for want of Mending. Shirts and Shoes are very much wanting especially in the three Regiments of the Second Brigade; where great Numbers of the Men are wholly Destitude of those articles."
