As a french team with a lot of gamers interested in History as reenactors, hobbyists, students and teachers, we play in many games as a RP team who is focused on the historical point of view, even if the game is not strictly historical : our main structures play on M&B NW, M&B Bannerlord (Medieval), War of Rights (XIXth) but we also play on many others games. Our practise is RP, but we are flexible if the way of playing according to History is unconfortable.

The Wise's Legion is made of several communities from different games, with :
- La Vieille Garde on NW (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=41011.0) and Le Royaume de Bretonnie on Bannerlord (https://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php?groups/bre-%E2%9A%9C%EF%B8%8F-royaume-de-bretonnie-%E2%9A%9C%EF%B8%8F-recrute-eu-fr.83/about)
- Le 17e léger on NW (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=45963.0)
- 10th Louisiana on WoR ( https://discord.gg/C4SPRxZXqM )
- Others friends from other units from others communities

Each regiment from the other games will have his own regiment, such as :
- 22nd VA Infantry with le 1er régiment de grenadiers à pied de la Garde on NW and Kingdom of Bretonnie on Bannerlord
- 36th VA Infantry with le 17e léger on NW
- 60th VA Infantry with 10th Louisiana on WOR
- 8th VA Cavalry (from the 3 units)
- Kanawha Artillery (ibidem).




Organized in the Kanawha Valley in May 1861 by Brigadier General Henry A. Wise (former Virginia Governor 1855-1860, U.S. Congressmen 1832-1844), the Wise Legion (a.k.a. Wise's Brigade or Army of the Kanawha) comprised of 5 regiments, which later was commissioned into Confederate service as the 22nd Virginia Infantry, 36th Virginia Infantry, 46th Virginia Infantry, 50th Virginia Infantry, 59th Virginia Infantry, 60th Virginia Infantry, 8th Virginia Cavalry, 10th Virginia Cavalry, Hale's Battery, & the Kanawha Artillery.

Service :
- Battle of Carnifex Ferry (sept 10, 1861)
- Battle of Roanoke Island (feb 7-8, 1862)
- Seven Days Battles (june 25-july 1, 1862)
- First Battle of Petersburg (june 9, 1864)
- Second Battle of Petersburg (june 15-18, 1865)

Thank you everyone. Sorry, I have deleted some post because I hadn't let some "reserve post" to fill them later...  :-[ ;D

The Wise's Legion is still active with french players from several communities, but we don't "speak too much" on this forum, we prefer waiting the release of the game to make the list of our players. Thank you  ;)

Update with the leaders of the units, the players' list will be shown as the game would release, to keep a "RP spirit".  ;)
