17th Alabama [NA]
« on: March 15, 2022, 04:49:09 am »
We're the 17th Alabama, A new up and coming regiment for Battle Cry of Freedom! It will be run by myself, Warhorse. If this is something you would like to do, message me on steam. We're a small volunteer regiment that has no strict attendance. I hope to see you fellas in the game, and perhaps other shenanigans. See you guys on the battlefield!

This regiment was organized at Montgomery in August 1861. In November it moved to Pensacola, and was present at the bombardment in that month, and in January after. In March 1862 the regiment was sent to west Tennessee. Brigaded under J.K. Jackson of Georgia - with the Eighteenth, Twenty-first, and Twenty-fourth Alabama regiments - the regiment fought at Shiloh, and lost 125 killed and wounded. A month after, it was in the fight at Farmington with few casualties. In the autumn, when Gen. Bragg moved into Kentucky, the Seventeenth, much depleted by sickness, was left at Mobile. It was there drilled as heavy artillery, and had charge of eight batteries on the shore of the bay. It remained at that post till March 1864, when it was ordered to Rome, Ga. The brigade consisted of the Seventeenth and Twenty-ninth Alabama, and the First and Twenty-sixth Alabama, and Thirty-seventh Mississippi, were soon after added, the command devolving at different times on Gen. Canty of Russell, Col. Murphey of Montgomery, Col. O'Neal of Lauderdale, and Gen. Shelley of Talladega. It was engaged at the Oostanaula bridge, and in the three days' battle of Resaca, with severe loss. The Seventeenth had its full share of the trials and hardships of the campaign from Dalton to Jonesboro, fighting almost daily, especially at Cassville, New Hope, Kennesaw, Lost Mountain, and Atlanta. In the battle of Peach-tree Creek it lost 130 killed and wounded, and on the 28th of July 180 killed and wounded. The entire loss from the Resaca to Lovejoy's Station was 586, but few of whom were captured. The regiment moved into Tennessee with Gen. Hood, and lost at least two-thirds of its forces engaged at Franklin; and a number of the remainder were captured at Nashville. A remnant moved into North Carolina, and a part fought at Bentonville. It was then consolidated with the Twenty-ninth and Thirty-third Alabama regiments, with E.P. Holcombe of Lowndes as colonel, J.F. Tate of Russell lieutenant colonel, and Willis J. Milner of Butler major.

Hi there. Starting coming Monday 04.04.2022 at 9pm CET (3pm EST) we will be hosting an Official EU Linebattle Event. Anyone is welcome to attend. The Event will rotate between different game-modes and maps every week.

Rules can be read here:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VPYVMzxIaNdfwl6Ju74QsiRE-v4VWz-WmwysOdDdEdU/edit

Signups will be done on our our Discord server: https://discord.gg/battlecryoffreedom in #event-signups 30 minutes prior to the event. All Regiment leaders or Reps must be present at minimum 30-15 minutes prior, so that we can figure out team balance in a timely manner and can start the event on time. Specialist roles such as Sharpshooters or artillery will also be assigned then.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me on Discord or on Steam. Thanks
