58th New York - Polish Legion [NA]
« on: November 24, 2021, 12:53:25 am »

the above image is modified.

      THE POLISH LEGION, under command of Colonel Julian Allen, are fast increasing their numbers,
and perfecting themselves in military tactics. One of the companies, mustering seventy-seven men, wearing the crimson
Lancer cap, passed our office yesterday on their way to be measured for their uniforms.  (May 1, 1861)

This is the 1erPLG's Battle Cry of Freedom.  We made this regiment 'cause Battle Cry of Freedom should be fun and we're big-dong polska mothafuckas. 
We have our own unique regiment in North and south! Also hopefully soon for Battle Cry of Freedom

If you wish to join us, do it through our website or our FSE thread
We don't have dedicated recruiting for this regiment, so joining the 1erPLG will immediately tie you to this regiment.

Ingame, we use names given from a historically accurate roster of the 58th.

 

History of the 58th New York "The Polish Legion"

The Fifty-eighth Regiment was composed almost entirely of men of foreign birth. Various nationalities were represented in its organization, composed of Poles, Germans, Danes, Italians, Russians, and Frenchmen, most of whom were recruited in New York City. In August, 1861, Colonel Wladimir Krzyzanowski, a Polish officer who had seen service in the Polish war, was authorized by the Hon. Simon Cameron, Secretary of War, at Washington, to recruit a regiment composed primarily of Poles. It was seen as a step forward to the Polish Immigrant community that they to could play a part in putting down the Rebellion. In reality the regiment was made up of many nationalities with the Poles only being one ethnic group.

 The 58th saw its first combat as apart of General Fremont's Army in the Shenandoah Valley facing the famous Confederate General Stonewall Jackson. They served a apart of the 11th Corps which was composed primarily of ethnic European "Foreign" Regiments. Many of the "Native" regiments composed of men who disliked foreigners held the 11th corps in low contempt. This coupled with unlucky situations at Chancellorsville & Gettysburg served to heighten the 11th Corp's Infamy as the worst troops in the Army of the Potomac.

After Gettysburg the 11th Corps including the 58th New York were sent out West to join General Sherman's Army. The Regiment spent the remainder of the war recuperating their heavy losses and guarding various posts in Tennessee. They were discharged upon the war's end. In closing the 58thNY served as a testament to the patriotism that Polish immigrants had patriotic loyalty to their new homeland the the resolve to make the last final measure of devotion to prove that fact, death of the battlefield.
