On January 16th, 2021, Captain Stryker authorized the official formation of the 39th New York Volunteers, nicknamed the Garibaldi Guard. With a loyal and dedicated regimental base from the RSL, 20th, and various other groups in the NW and North and South communities as well as holdfast, the 39thNY has a primary goal to ensure the mistakes of previous regimental games shall not become prominent in this game by providing stability within the community. Outside of BCOF, the 39thNY will often play other games and hang out within our regimental discord. We pride ourselves on professionalism and experience within the ranks as well as creating a new home for many newer players.

This regiment was mustered (assembled) in New York City by the Union Défense Committee, under the leadership of Col. Frederick George D'Utassy by special authority from the War Department during the Civil War of the United States. On May 27, 1861, they deployed to Washington D.C., having been authorized for a period of three years by New York State.

Initially, the regiment was divided into eleven companies of men of different national heritage: three German, three Hungarian, one Swiss, one Italian, one French, one Spanish, and one Portuguese. On May 31, 1863, the regiment was consolidated into four companies: A, B, C and D. The regiment expanded as new companies were recruited in the field. On December 8, 1863, Company E was added; on December 14, 1863, Company F joined. On December 19, 1863, Company G was added; and on December 30, 1863 Company H joined. Companies I and K joined in January, 1864.

Six companies: E, F, G, H, I and K, remained in service. In October, 1864, a new Company D, mustered mostly from Malone, New York joined the regiment for one year. On June 2, 1865, the members of the regiment not eligible to be mustered out were transferred into the 185th Infantry.




   
During its period of service, 5 officers and 62 enlisted men were killed in action; 3 officers and 49 enlisted men died of wounds received in action; 1 officer and 158 enlisted men died of disease and other causes. In total, 278 men (9 officers and 269 enlistees) died while in service in the regiment. Of those, 1 officer and 99 enlisted men died while captured by the Rebel army.

Foreign Intervention / The British Grenadiers
« on: September 10, 2021, 02:33:58 am »


About us.
We are a British regiment who specialise in foot guards or close combat infantry. We can trace our history back to Early 2014 when the BG was first formed. After many good matches and tournaments Ghost decided to disband as he was moving onto other games disbanded in mid 2015. Most of the regiment carried on into the 57th under the command of Havoc after the disbanding. I have reformed to try to get some old faces back and hopefully some new.
We have some very simple rules here. 1. Be nice. 2. To have jolly good fun. 3. No racism or slurs. 4. Listen to all orders. 5. Do not retreat. 6. Do not troll. Finally added it to the NaS list.

History of the British Grenadeir's

The Grenadier Guards is an infantry regiment of the British Army. It can trace its lineage back to 1656 when Lord Wentworth's Regiment was raised in Bruges to protect the exiled Charles II. In 1665, this regiment was combined with John Russell's Regiment of Guards to form the current regiment, known as the 1st Regiment of Foot Guards. Since then, the regiment has filled both a ceremonial and protective role as well as an operational one. In 1900, the regiment provided a cadre of personnel to form the Irish Guards; while later, in 1915 it also provided the basis of the Welsh Guards upon their formation.

The regiment's early history saw it take part in numerous conflicts including the War of Spanish Succession, the War of Austrian Succession, the Seven Years' War, and the Napoleonic Wars; at the end of this period the regiment was granted the "Grenadier" designation by a Royal Proclamation. During the Victorian Era, the regiment took part in the Crimean War, the Anglo-Egyptian War, the Mahdist War, and the Second Boer War.

During the First World War, the Grenadier Guards was expanded from three battalions to five, of which four served on the Western Front, while later during the Second World War, six battalions were raised, and several were converted to an armoured role as part of the Guards Armoured Division. These units fought in France, North-West Europe, North Africa and Italy.

After the Second World War the regiment was reduced first to three battalions, then to two, and finally to one battalion in the mid-1990s. Major deployments during this time have included operations in Palestine, Malaya, Cyprus, Northern Ireland, the Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq.




   
The Grenadier Guards trace their lineage back to 1656, when Lord Wentworth's Regiment was raised from gentlemen of the Honourable Artillery Company by the then heir to the throne, Prince Charles (later King Charles II), in Bruges, in the Spanish Netherlands (present-day Belgium), where it formed a part of the exiled King's bodyguard. A few years later, a similar regiment known as John Russell's Regiment of Guards was formed
   

In 1665, these two regiments were combined to form the 1st Regiment of Foot Guards, consisting of 24 companies of men. Since then the Grenadier Guards have served ten Kings and four Queens, including the current Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout the 18th century, the regiment took part in a number of campaigns including the War of Spanish Succession, the War of Austrian Succession and the Seven Years' War. At the end of the Napoleonic Wars, the regiment gained the name "Grenadier" in July 1815 following a Royal Proclamation. During the Victorian era, the regiment took part in the Crimean War, participating in the fighting at the Alma river, Inkerman, and Sevastopol.[8] For their involvement in the Crimean War, four members of the 3rd Battalion received the Victoria Cross. Later the regiment fought at Battle of Tel el-Kebir during the Anglo-Egyptian War in 1882, and then the Mahdist War in Sudan, both during the 1885 Suakin Expedition and in 1898, at the Battle of Omdurman. During the Second Boer War, the 2nd and 3rd Battalions were deployed to South Africa, where they took part in a number of battles including the Battle of Modder River and the Battle of Belmont, as well as a number of smaller actions. In 1900, seventy-five men from the regiment were used to raise a fourth Guards regiment, known as the Irish Guards in honour of the role that Irish regiments had played in the fighting in South Africa.

About us
The 6th New York Infantry Regiment "Wilson's Zouaves" is a semi-professional, English-speaking group. Acting as an organized and disciplined unit of infantrymen, we serve to do our duty through thick and thin. We follow a simple code for our brotherhood: "Nec aspera terrent," or "Hardships do not deter us." No matter the difficulty ahead of us, we will persevere through any problem we come across because we do so together. We perform in events weekly, showcasing our good vibes and fun times for the whole community to witness.

The regiment also partakes in other activities with one another, such as grand strategy games, Minecraft, other modules and NW in M&B: Warband, and other games. The regiment has also conducted several occasions where members have met up to share drinks and ultimately just have a good time. Besides gaming, our members also partake in avid conversation regarding what interests them, including tabletop games, history, music, and more. The core concept of our regiment is a place for strangers to become friends and for friends to become brothers. Outside of events, members are encouraged to spend time with each other and to become friends outside of the game. We have had members from all over the globe, predominantly from the United States and Canada, and continue to encourage anyone who is interested to join and be a part of this community regardless of location.

Formation of the Regiment
The 21st was founded in 2015, under Colonel Eireman, Lieutenant Colonel Dimefan, Sergeant Major Thomas. Soon Dimefan and Thomas decided to move on from the 21st and Lieutenant Hanover Stepped up to help lead the regiment. But soon Hanover would have to step down as he was joining the Marine Corps the community was one that saw itself as a disciplined line infantry regiment and looked for perfection when it came to this. For this time the 21st history is recorded in the old forum post, posted here. Alexander and his brother Funnyfreak would soon take the reins of the regiment from Eireman and Hanover, ushering in a new age of the 21st. We moved over to Bcof to join this new experience. We joined the confederacy with the 14thVI due to a lack of union presence at the time we changed to the union under the 6thNY and joined Excelsior Brigade.


History of the Regiment

The 6th New York Infantry Regiment, also called "Wilson's Zouaves", was a unit of the Union Army during the American Civil War. It was organized at New York City on May 25, 1861. The Regiment was composed of 5 initial companies of A, B, C, and D. Companies E, F, G, H, I, and K were added May 25, 1861.

About Grant's Legion



Grant's Legion origins start in the Napoleonic Wars community where Colonel Alexander of the 21st and Captain Stryker of the RSL forged a great friendship. After many hard-fought battles and sieges in the Napoleonic Wars community, they have decided to move on to Battle Cry of Freedom and to create a Brigade. The name was chosen to be the Excelsior Brigade due to the brigade not only being based in New York but also based on the Union Army.  The regiments of EB are the 39thNY, 6thNY, 4thUS, 11thNY, 3rdNH, 2ndUSSS and the British Grenadiers. Our mission as Grant's Legion is to cultivate a friendly and cooperative community, not only within this brigade but with the BCOF community as well. We seek to achieve this by removing the toxicity of the NW community and breaking down barriers between previous NW leaders and previous WOR leaders. It was decided upon to change the name to Grant's Legion to stand out from the community and show that we do things differently. We want to create a community that can be enjoyable and last against the tests of time.

History of the Legion

At the outbreak of the Civil War, the controversial Sickles desired to repair his public image, which had been marred by the shooting death of his wife's paramour, Philip Barton Key. Sickles was active in raising thousands of recruits from around New York City for service in the United States volunteers in May 1861 under the authority of the War Department. The first of Sickles' regiments mustered into service on June 20, 1861. Subsequently, he was appointed as the colonel of one of the four full regiments he organized. Later, Sickles was promoted to brigadier general of volunteers in September 1861, taking command of the brigade.

The four regiments raised by Sickles that comprised the first Excelsior Brigade were the 70th, 72nd, 73rd, and 74th New York Infantry.

In October 1861, the 71st New York, along with the 70th through the 74th Regiments and 10 Companies of the 3rd Indiana Cavalry, formed the Second Excelsior Brigade under General Sickles. The brigade was placed under the overall divisional command of Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker in October. Its initial tasks included assisting in the building of defences around Washington and stopping resupply of the Confederates from Southern Maryland.

In March 1862, Sickles was forced to relinquish command when Congress refused to confirm his commission, but he worked diligently to lobby among his Washington political contacts and reclaimed both his rank and his command on May 24, 1862, in time to rejoin the Army in the Peninsula Campaign. Because of this interruption, he missed his brigade's significant actions at the Battle of Williamsburg. Sickles was back in charge in time for the Battle of Seven Pines and the Seven Days Battles.

On the morning of June 25 at the Battle of Oak Grove, Sickles's New Yorkers encountered difficulties moving through their abatis, then through the upper portions of an impeding swamp, and finally met stiff Confederate resistance, all of which threw the Federal line out of alignment.

Sickles was again absent for the Second Battle of Bull Run, having used his political influences to obtain leave to go to New York City to recruit new troops. Col. Nelson Taylor instead led the brigade.

The Excelsior Brigade, still under Colonel Taylor as Sickles had been promoted to divisional command, missed the Battle of Antietam in September because the III Corps was stationed on the lower Potomac River, protecting the capital.

The brigade's strength had been augmented by the addition of the 120th New York. In the Battle of Fredericksburg, the Excelsior's were led by Col. George B. Hall.

Brig. Gen. Joseph W. Revere commanded the Excelsior Brigade during the Battle of Chancellorsville in early May 1863. With the rest of Hooker's old division, it was held in reserve in some woods near the Chancellor House, guarding a road that led to the important United States ford over the Rappahannock River.




   
Following the Battle of Chancellorsville, Col. William R. Brewster of the 73rd New York assumed command of the Excelsior Brigade, which was then in the division of Brig. Gen Andrew A. Humphreys. Brewster led the brigade during the Gettysburg Campaign in June and July 1863. On July 2, the brigade was advanced to an area near the Peach Orchard. It was flanked out of that position by the Confederate division of Maj. Gen. Lafayette McLaws. The remains of the brigade took part in a counterattack late in the afternoon that recaptured some abandoned Union guns. Brewster reported that the brigade lost 778 of 1,837 engaged.
   

Brewster fell ill after the battle, and Brig. Gen. Francis Barretto Spinola assumed command during the pursuit of the Confederate army into Virginia. Spinola's brigade led the Union troops on July 23 at the Battle of Wapping Heights in Linden, Virginia, suffering 18 men killed, including two officers. Spinola was badly wounded in the fighting, along with dozens of his men.

Col. J. Egbert Farnum of the 70th New York then commanded the brigade until Brewster returned to active duty for the autumn campaigns of 1863. Brewster inspired his men by rising from his “sick bed” to lead the Excelsiors in the Mine Run Campaign.
to fight the Army of Northern Virginia.
When the Army of the Potomac was reorganized in the spring of 1864 for the Overland Campaign of Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, Brewster retained brigade command. The Excelsior Brigade, augmented with the 11th Massachusetts and the 84th Pennsylvania, served in the Battle of the Wilderness in the Fourth Division, II Corps under Brig. Gen. Gershom Mott. When the remnants of the division became part of the Third Division of Maj. Gen. David B. Birney during the Battle of Spotsylvania, Brewster’s brigade became the division’s Fourth Brigade. He led these men at the Battle of Cold Harbor and in the initial operations of the Siege of Petersburg. Then the brigade was abolished. Most of the Excelsiors were moved to the First Brigade, Third Division.

The individual regiments mustered out of the army during the summer of 1864, and the men returned home to New York.

Units of the Legion







On January 16th, 2021, Captain Stryker authorized the official formation of the 39th New York Volunteers, nicknamed the Garibaldi Guard. With a loyal and dedicated regimental base from the RSL, 20th, and various other groups in the NW and North and South communities as well as holdfast, the 39thNY has a primary goal to ensure the mistakes of previous regimental games shall not become prominent in this game by providing stability within the community. Outside of BCOF, the 39thNY will often play other games and hang out within our regimental discord. We pride ourselves on professionalism and experience within the ranks as well as creating a new home for many newer players. We primarily play as line infantry in events and we do have a competitive "guard company" which consists of the best players of the 39thNY.









The 6th New York Infantry Regiment "Wilson's Zouaves" is a semi-professional, English-speaking group. Acting as an organized and disciplined unit of infantrymen, we serve to do our duty through thick and thin. We follow a simple code for our brotherhood: "Nec Aspera terrent," or "Hardships do not deter us." No matter the difficulty ahead of us, we will persevere through any problem we come across because we do so together. We perform in events weekly, showcasing our good vibes and fun times for the whole community to witness. The regiment also partakes in other activities with one another, such as grand strategy games, Minecraft, other modules, and NW in M&B: Warband, and other games. The regiment has also conducted several occasions where members have met up to share drinks and ultimately just have a good time. Besides gaming, our members also partake in avid conversation regarding what interests them, including tabletop games, history, music, and more. The core concept of our regiment is a place for strangers to become friends and for friends to become brothers. Outside of events, members are encouraged to spend time with each other and to become friends outside of the game. We have had members from all over the globe, predominantly from the United States and Canada, and continue to encourage anyone who is interested to join and be a part of this community regardless of location.


4th United States Light Artillery Regiment "Nulli Vestigia Retrorsum"



On April 30th, 2021, Major General/Brigadier General Stryker authorized the official formation of the 4th New York Light Artillery lead by Captain PK_27, also known as the Empire Artillery. With a loyal and dedicated regimental base from the HRE, 39thNY, and other NW veterans, the 4thUS will be the main artillery regiment within the newly found Excelsior Brigade. Before BCOF, this regiment started from the famed 26thNC in North and South which would eventually become Wurttemburg of the HRE. Eventually, this group would merge into the RSL and would continue to stay with Stryker since then.







11th New York Infantry "Fire Zouaves"



Founded by long-time veterans of the genre and piloted by dedicated members who want nothing more than to have good fun and enjoy an environment fueled by a desire for competition, the 11thNY is an ideal place for gamers who want to hone their skills in a lively and active community. Utilizing tried and proven tactics and techniques and founded on a bedrock of solid fighters and able officers, the 58NY is a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. We pride ourselves on putting significant focus on group tactics, especially in melee. Our regiment is upheld by a sound and pragmatic regime that gives every rank explicit responsibilities and purpose. If you choose to become an NCO or an officer, you choose to take on more responsibility in our regiment, and you will be held to higher standards than the rest of the regiment. Though we place immense importance on competitive skill and getting ourselves hard-earned victory, we have not forgotten that the end goal here is to enjoy ourselves. You will not be shouted down at and treated like you are suffering in a real army. There is no PTS in our regiment, and there are no senseless punishments either. We will call for silence intense moments such as during a group fight or when we are under stress, but at any other time, you are free to speak as you like. If the specifications above are to your liking, this is the regiment for you to join and begin or continue your regimental career in Battle Cry of Freedom.








The 3rd New Hampshire stems from Mount and Blade: Warband Napoleonic Wars from a regiment called the 3e Légion de la Vistule, founded by Korwan on April 28th, 2020. During the pandemic, Korwan felt an urge to return to Napoleonic Wars and got his old officer Don to hop on and start the regiment. SteveUrkle12 was then invited, creating the 3 man officer corps of the regiment. Through strict old-style discipline and mass recruitment, the 3e has sustained itself quite well, without having any fear of disbanding. With the world opening back up, Korwan felt the need to take a step back from leadership, but not the regiment that he created. He stepped down on April 5th, 2021, handing leadership over to SteveUrkle12. With a fresh leader, the 3e is looking to new horizons and sees Battle Cry of Freedom as an opportunity to bring old-style regiments into a new era as the 3rd New Hampshire. The 3rd New Hampshire is a regiment that will fight and stand for each other no matter the odds. We will support our brothers, just as they would support us. We have a sense of discipline that keeps everyone refreshed and in line, so no one person feels left out or degraded. We have a strong community of people willing to help one another, whether it be in life or in-game. We are here to help, defend, and maintain the community.


2nd United States Sharpshooters



On January 16th, 2021, Captain Stryker authorized the official formation of the 39th New York Volunteers, nicknamed the Garibaldi Guard. With a loyal and dedicated regimental base from the RSL, 20th, and various other groups in the NW and North and South communities as well as holdfast, the 39thNY has a primary goal to ensure the mistakes of previous regimental games shall not become prominent in this game by providing stability within the community. Upon Dipington taking over the regiment it was voted upon to change the name to the 2nd United States Sharpshooters. Outside of BCOF, the 2ndUSSS will often play other games and hang out within our regimental discord. We pride ourselves on professionalism and experience within the ranks as well as creating a new home for many newer players.

The Guard Company Chose to remain as the 39th under a new command.





The British Grenadiers are a foreign intervention regiment for BCoF. We date our history back to 2014 when the regiment was first formed.  We pride ourselves on professionalism and experience within the ranks as well as creating a new home for many newer players.
