The 91st Regiment of Foot (Argyllshire Highlanders)


Regimental History in the Napoleonic Wars

The 91st Highlanders were in the retreat that ended at the Battle of Corunna with Sir John Moore's Army in 1808. This was the beginning of the long Peninsular War. In 1809 the regiment was sent to the Kingdom of Holland on the less auspicious and ill-fated Walcheren Campaign. In 1812 the 91st were sent back to Spain to fight in the Peninsular War under Arthur Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington). They fought at the Battles of Vittoria in June 1813, Sorauren in July, Nivelle in November and Bayonne in December. In 1814 the 91st were heavily involved in the fighting in Southern France that led to the Battle of Toulouse in April which finally saw the end of the Peninsular War.

After a brief period in Ireland the 91st were shipped off to Belgium in early 1815, where they were stationed when Napoleon escaped and raised his Army and headed toward the Allied armies in Flanders.

The 91st, under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Sir William Douglas, were based in Major General George Johnstone's 6th Brigade in Sir Charles Colville's 4th Division. They distinguished themselves at the battle of Quatre Bras and then did not fight at the Battle of Waterloo but were based at Halle guarding the right flank of Wellington's Army. On 25 June they were one of the columns that stormed the fortress town of Cambrai.

About the 91st
The 91st is made up of a currently small mixture of very seasoned and relatively new players to Napoleonic Wars. We are a semi-serious regiment seeking anyone who wants to be a part of a fun and accepting community, regardless of experience or status. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, feel free to contact me here or on my Steam. We are not affiliated with the old EU 91st and are a new upstart regiment.

Can I just say that I’m really impressed with the cav community, 10x more mature than the inf community and a lot less tolerant of the cancerous players
