Regiments (Game Clans) / Virginia Military Institute [NA/EU]
« on: February 27, 2022, 05:50:37 am »













The VMI consider ourselves to be a relaxed, lenient, and serious community. We play the game to have fun, to shoot some muskets and watch
our shots wreak havoc upon the enemy, and most importantly have some laughs along the way. Trolling, however, is not tolerated. Though we
like to have fun, we understand there is a time and a place to mess around heavily. Events are not those places to do so. If you're lookingfor a
semi-serious environment with a regiment that likes to fire mass volleys and bayonet charges primarily, then the VMI might just be for you!
Don't hesitate in reaching out!

HISTORY OF THE VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE                                                                                                          Founded, 1839

Early History

In the years after the War of 1812, the Commonwealth
of Virginia built and maintained several arsenals to
store weapons intended for use by the state militia in
the event of invasion or slave revolt. One of them was
placed in Lexington. Residents came to resent the
presence of the soldiers, whom they saw as drunken
and undisciplined. In 1826, one guard beat another to
death. Townspeople wanted to keep the arsenal, but
sought a new way of guarding it, so as to eliminate the
"undesirable element." In 1834, the Franklin Society, a
local literary and debate society, debated, "Would it be
politic for the State to establish a military school, at the
Arsenal, near Lexington, in connection with Washington
College, on the plan of the West Point Academy?" They
unanimously concluded that it would. Lexington
attorney John Thomas Lewis Preston became the most
active advocate of the proposal. In a series of three
anonymous letters in the Lexington Gazette in 1835,
he proposed replacing the arsenal guard with students
living under military discipline, receiving some military
education, as well as a liberal education. The school's
graduates would contribute to the development of the
state and, should the need arise, provide trained
officers for the state's militia.
         After a public relations campaign that included Preston
meeting in person with influential business, military and
 political figures and many open letters from prominent
supporters including Alden Partridge of Norwich
University, in 1836 the Virginia legislature passed a bill
authorizing creation of a school at the Lexington arsenal,
and the Governor signed the measure into law. The
organizers of the planned school formed a board of
visitors, which included Preston, and the board selected
Claudius Crozet as their first president. Crozet had
served as an engineer in Napoleon Bonaparte's army
before immigrating to the United States. In America, he
served as an engineering professor at West Point, as
well as state engineer in Louisiana and mathematics
professor at Jefferson College in Convent, Louisiana.
Crozet was also the Chief Engineer of Virginia and
someone whom Thomas Jefferson referred to as, "the
smartest mathematician in the United States." The board
delegated to Preston the task of deciding what to call the
new school, and he created the name Virginia Military
Institute. Under Crozet's direction, the board of visitors
crafted VMI's program of instruction, basing it off of those
of the United States Military Academy and Crozet's alma
mater the École Polytechnique of Paris.
So, instead of the mix of military and liberal education
imagined by Preston, the board created a military and
engineering school offering the most thorough
engineering curriculum in America, outside of West
Point. Preston was also tasked with hiring VMI's first
Superintendent. He was persuaded that West Point
graduate and former Army officer Francis Henney
Smith, then professor of mathematics at Hampden–
Sydney College, was the most suitable candidate.
Preston successfully recruited Smith, and convinced
him to become the first Superintendent and Professor
of Tactics.

Civil War Period


VMI cadets and alumni played instrumental roles in the
American Civil War. On 14 occasions, the Confederacy
called cadets into active military engagements. VMI
authorized battle streamers for each one of these
engagements but chose to carry only one: the battle
streamer for New Market. Many VMI Cadets were
ordered to Camp Lee, at Richmond, to train recruits
under General Stonewall Jackson. VMI alumni were
regarded among the best officers of the South and
several distinguished themselves in the Union forces
as well. Fifteen graduates rose to the rank of general
in the Confederate Army, and one rose to this rank in
the Union Army. Just before his famous flank attack
at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Jackson looked at his
division and brigade commanders, noted the high
number of VMI graduates and said, "The Institute will
be heard from today." Three of Jackson's four division
commanders at Chancellorsville, Generals James Lane,
Robert Rodes, and Raleigh Colston, were VMI
graduates as were more than twenty of his brigadiers
and colonels.
         On 14 May 1864, the Governor of Virginia once again
called upon the cadets from VMI to participate in the
American Civil War. After marching overnight 80 miles
from Lexington to New Market, on 15 May 1864, 247
members of the VMI Corps of Cadets fought at the
Battle of New Market. This event marks the only time in
U.S. history wherein the student body of an operating
college fought as an organized unit in pitched combat in
battle (as recognized by the American Battlefield Trust).
This event was the 14th time VMI Cadets were called
into action during the Civil War. At New Market, in a
matter of minutes, VMI suffered fifty-five casualties
with ten cadets killed; the cadets were led into battle
by the Commandant of Cadets and future VMI
Superintendent Colonel Scott Shipp. Shipp was also
wounded during the battle. Six of the ten fallen cadets
are buried on VMI grounds behind the statue "Virginia
Mourning Her Dead" by sculptor Moses Ezekiel, a VMI
graduate who was also wounded in the Battle of New

General John C. Breckinridge, the commanding Southern
general, held the cadets in reserve and did not use them
until Union troops broke through the Confederate lines.
Upon seeing the tide of battle turning in favor of the
Union forces, Breckinridge stated, "Put the boys in...and
may God forgive me for the order." The VMI cadets held
the line and eventually pushed forward across an open
muddy field, capturing a Union artillery emplacement,
and securing victory for the Confederates. The Union
troops were withdrawn and Confederate troops under
General Breckinridge held the Shenandoah Valley. On
12 June 1864 Union forces, under the command of
General David Hunter, shelled and burned the Institute
as part of the Valley Campaigns of 1864. The destruction
was almost complete, and VMI had to temporarily hold
classes at the Alms House in Richmond, Virginia. In April
1865 Richmond was evacuated due to the impending fall
of Petersburg and the VMI Corps of Cadets was
disbanded. The Lexington campus reopened for classes
on 17 October 1865.

Confederates / 6th Florida Infantry Regiment
« on: January 02, 2017, 11:06:45 pm »

The 6th Florida Infantry Regiment' was raised by the Confederate State of Florida for service to the Provisional Army of the Confederate States of America. Organized and released from state service in mid-April 1862, the regiment would leave the state in mid-June, 1862. It was assigned from June through August 1862 to the Army of East Tennessee (Department of East Tennessee), General Edmund Kirby Smith commanding. The Army of East Tennessee was redesignated as the Confederate Army of Kentucky on August 25, 1862, when General Smith led it into eastern Kentucky during the Confederate Heartland Offensive. On November 20, 1862, the Army of Mississippi, General Braxton Bragg commanding, and the Army of Kentucky, General E. Kirby Smith commanding, became the Army of Tennessee. General Bragg assumed command, and General Smith was reassigned to the Department of East Tennessee. The 6th Florida would remain assigned to the Army of Tennessee until its surrender at Bentonville, North Carolina on April 26, 1865.

On February 2, 1862, the Confederate War Department issued a call for troops. Florida, under this newly-imposed quota, would furnish two regiments and a battalion to fight for the duration of the war. The troops would rendezvous at preselected locations and there "be clothed, supplied, and armed at the expense of the Confederate States." Furthermore, each enlistee would receive a $50 bounty for volunteering.

The ten companies that would become the 6th Florida Infantry Regiment would begin forming in February and March, 1862 as independent companies serving the State of Florida. The companies were recruited from Collier, Gadsden, Jackson, Santa Rosa, Union, Walton, and Washington counties. The companies surveyed maintained an average age of twenty-five years. The companies would be mustered individually into Confederate service for "3 years, or the war"; they would not be organized into a regiment until the election of field officers. The various units were ordered to "camp of instruction" at the Mount Vernon Arsenal at Chattahoochie in Gadsden County in late March, where they would be trained in maneuvering in large bodies and in campaigning duties.

The 6th Florida Infantry Regiment departed the Mount Vernon Arsenal at Chattahoochee, Florida on June 13, 1862. Transport was by steamboat from there to Columbus, Georgia where it arrived on June 16, 1862. From Columbus, they would take the cars to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Lieutenant James Hayes of Company D wrote that, "After we left Columbus, nearly every house we passed they were out with their handkerchiefs waving and hollering, throwing bocaies[sic] and apples into the cars as we would pass by. From Atlanta to this place beat all . . . They were perfect swarms of young ladies standing on the road with their flags flying." Lieutenant Hugh Black of Company A found the journey from Columbus to Chattanooga somewhat less enjoyable; he would write to his wife that, "the car that myself and the remainder of our company was in ran off the track and very near crushing the whole concern to attoms.rriving at Chattanooga on June 18, the 6th Florida was immediately ordered to report temporarily to General Danville Leadbetter, who had planned an expedition across the Tennessee River at Shell Mound. The expedition was abandoned while the regiment was enroute, and continued to Knoxville. On July 3, the 6th Florida Infantry (Col. Jesse. J. Finley), 7th Florida Infantry (Col. Madison S. Perry), 1st Florida Cavalry (Col. William G. M. Davis), and the Marion (Florida) Artillery would become a brigade; Colonel Davis was the senior officer and given command. This brigade would be designated as the 2nd Brigade of the 2nd Division, commanded by Brigadier General Henry Heth.

The 6th Florida remained at or near Knoxville until August 13 to thwart an anticipated Federal advance from the mountains. During this period, it performed skirmish and picket duties at Knoxville and at Loudon, some 35 miles to the southwest. On July 25, Colonel Finley was given custody of a suspected Union spy and orders from Major General Smith that he was to keep the prisoner, "… in closest guard beyond the possibility of escape, and if a single gun be fired by the enemy to-morrow morning the guard will be instructed by you to shoot the prisoner immediately, putting him to death."

The 6th Florida was formed by Whetzel and Midnight on January 1st, 2017. Whetzel and Midnight have led successful regiments in the past. Whetzel Led the VMI and Midnight Led the 27th Alabama. We both Aim to make this regiment also successful like our past regiments. If you would like to join the regiment please contact one of us on steam. {Our steam signatures will be on this forum.

The 7th West Virginia Volunteer Infantry Regiment was an infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. For much of the war, it was a part of the famed "Gibraltar Brigade" in the Army of the Potomac. It was famed primarily for two major actions, a determined charge on the Sunken Road at Antietam and a late evening counterattack on East Cemetery Hill at Gettysburg that helped push back an attack by the Louisiana Tigers. After this engagement the men of the 7th West Virginia, reputed as crack shots, were rewarded with the coveted sixteen-shot, lever-action Henry repeating rifle, the precursor of the Winchester. This was a rare honor, since no more than 1,731 of the prized repeaters were purchased by the federal government during the war. The most prominent name in the unit was a group of men from Beallsville, Ohio Monroe County a family who came to this country from France over 100 years before our country was even a country in 1662. The Mellott family supplied 14 men to the 7th West Virginia ' s roster.

The 7th West Virginia (originally the 7th Virginia) was organized at Grafton, Portland, Greenland, Cameron, Morgantown and Wheeling, in western Virginia Along with men from the rolling hills of Monroe County in Ohio that is due East directory across the Ohio river from Marshal and Wetzel County, WV. between July 16, 1861, and December 3, 1861. It was initially attached to the Railroad District of West Virginia, and provided guard duty for the railroads against Confederate raiders.

There first action was a skirmish with the sheriff' of Tyler County WV.The unit was to hunt down and arrest this Confederate sympathizer. The 7th fought in the 1862 Valley Campaign in Nathaniel Banks' V Corps, seeing action in a number of small engagements before fighting in the Battle of Port Republic in late May. It was assigned to the II Corps and would remain in that organization for the rest of the war. A part of Nathan Kimball's brigade during the September 1862 Maryland Campaign, the 7th West Virginia took part in the attack on the Sunken Road ("Bloody Lane") at Antietam. Following the battle, the regiment helped garrison Harper's Ferry until the end of October, when it marched through the Loudoun Valley to Falmouth, Virginia. The 7th next saw action at the Battle of Fredericksburg in the II Corps assault, and participated in the ill-fated Mud March.

In late April and early May 1863, the 7th West Virginia participated in the Chancellorsville Campaign. In June, the regiment marched northward into Pennsylvania during the Gettysburg Campaign and took a defensive position on Cemetery Ridge on July 2. In the evening, along with the 4th Ohio and 14th Indiana, it was sent to help stop the attack of Jubal Early on Cemetery Hill. In the autumn of that same year, the 7th participated in the Mine Run and Bristol campaigns.

In February 1864, the 7th was engaged in fighting at Morton's Ford, and then took part in the Overland Campaign, including the Battle of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania, where it was involved in the attack on the Salient or "Bloody Angle." For the bulk of the year, the regiment was active during the Siege of Petersburg.

In early 1865, the 7th fought at the Battle of Hatcher's Run and then the fall of Petersburg. It subsequently marched in pursuit of the retreating Army of Northern Virginia during the Appomattox Campaign. The regiment marched in the Grand Review of the Armies in Washington, D.C. on May 23 before being transported to Louisville, Kentucky.

The 7th West Virginia was mustered out of Federal service on June 1, 1865.

Union / 7th New York State Militia {Silk Stocking Regiment}
« on: April 25, 2016, 11:54:21 pm »

The 7th Regiment of the New York Militia, aka the "Silk Stocking" regiment, was an infantry regiment in the Union Army during the American Civil War. Also known as the "Blue-Bloods" due to the disproportionate number of its members who were part of New York City's social elite, The 7th Militia was a pre-war New York Militia unit that was mustered into federal service for the Civil War.After organizing and brief training, the regiment, commanded by Colonel Marshall Lefferts, left New York City for Washington, D.C., on special call of President Abraham Lincoln on April 19, 1861, arriving in Annapolis Junction, Maryland, and opening communications with Washington April 24–25. There it was mustered in the service of the United States for thirty days, 26 April 1861; it served at Washington and was mustered out at New York city, 3 June 1861.

25 May 1862, the regiment, still commanded by Col. Lefferts, again left the state, and was mustered in the United States service at Camp Hamilton, Va., 29 May 1862, for three months, from 26 May 1862. It served most of this time at Baltimore, Md., and was mustered out of the United States service, 5 September 1862, at New York City.

16 June 1863, it again re-entered the United States service, and was mustered in at New York City, for thirty days. It left the state on the 17th, under the command of Colonel Lefferts, served at Baltimore, and Frederick, Md., in the 2d Separate Brigade, Middle Department, 8th Corps, and was mustered out of the United States service, 20 July 1863, at New York City.

In its service, in 1861, it lost one enlisted man, accidentally killed, and it took part in the advance into Virginia on 24 May 1861, and the New York City Riot on 16 July 1863.

The regiment was housed in the Capitol Buildings at Washington from April 25–May 2, and was mustered into Federal service on April 26, serving duty at Camp Cameron, Meridian Hill, Georgetown Heights, from May 2–23. After occupation of Arlington Heights, Virginia, May 24–26, it assisted in building Fort Runyon and was mustered out at New York City on June 3, 1861.

Once again, the regiment was mustered in, this time for thirty days' service starting June 16, 1863, and departed for Baltimore on June 17. It was attached to Morris' Brigade, 8th Army Corps, Middle Department, to July 7, and then to the 3rd Division, 3rd Army Corps, Army of the Potomac, to July 15. It was on duty at Fort Federal Hill and provost duty in Baltimore from June 18 to July 5 before being ordered to Frederick, Maryland, on July 5, and picket and outpost duty there until July 14. It reached New York City on July 16. The 7th was on duty during the New York Draft Riots from July 16–21.

The regiment mustered out for good on July 21, 1863.The Headquarters of the 7th during the Civil War was at the Tompkins Market on Third Avenue. In 1879, it was moved uptown to the newly built Seventh Regiment Armory on Park Avenue.

King during the American Civil War
One noteworthy member of the regiment, who left a body of paintings of the regiment's service, was Sanford Robinson Gifford; another was Rufus King, Jr. who was awarded the Medal of Honor. Also a member as a private during the spring 1861 deployment to Washington was Robert Gould Shaw, later commander of the 54th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry.

The 7th New York State Militia was formed 4/25/16 but the regiment itself has been around for 2 years starting out on the Confederacy as the 19th Virginia. Once we found a better name we took advantage of it and switched to the VMI. {Virginia Military Institute} We battled as the VMI for about a year and a half until we decided that our days fighting for the glorious confederacy were over. The We decide to go fight for Lincoln himself as he sent his request for more Union Men to bear arms and fight the Confederacy. We temporarily fought as the 149th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry until we could find a Union Regiment that we felt that would fit us. That being the..... 7th New York State Militia {7thNYSM}

The VMI is a line infantry regiment who aim to become one of the best English speaking regiments, we recruit anyone who can speak English and is willing to obey commands as well as being as active as they can be. We will do multiple events a week and training as well as some multiple-regiment linebattles in order to keep the regiment at a competitive standard. We aim to be one of the best regiments not only through skill, leadership and training, but also through our discipline in order to keep the regiment running well. Also in the VMI we will not only play NW or even only M&B:Warband, we will have a gaming community for other games such as Payday 2, CS:GO and Mercenaries.

Confederates / 24th Georgia Volunteer Infantry "Irish Legion"
« on: August 02, 2015, 08:20:46 am »


The 24th Georgia Volunteer Infantry Regiment was formed by the former N&S regiment, the "Virginia Military Institute" of which was lead by Brigadier General Whetzel.
The VMI served within the Dixie Army alongside other North and South regiments. 
Now known as the 24th Georgia Volunteer Infantry, consists of Company B  "Clinch's Georgia Battery",
Company C  "White County Marksmen", Company F  "Gwinnett Independent Blues", and Company H  "Currahee Rangers".
The 24th Georgia Volunteer Infantry are an experienced regiment that looks to bring experience to the battlefield,
 excelling in both leadership and combat capabilities from every company present within it's structure.

The 24th Georgia Volunteer Infantry was an infantry regiment in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War.
The regiment was part of Thomas Cobb's brigade at the Battle of Fredericksburg. The 24th Infantry Regiment, organized during the summer of
1861, recruited its members in White, Banks, Towns, Rabun, Gwinnett, Elbert, Hall, Franklin, and Habersham counties. The field officers were
 Colonels Robert McMillan and C. C. Sanders, Lieutenant Colonels Joseph N. Chandler and Thomas E. Winn, and Majors Robert E. McMillan and
 Frederick C. Smith. After serving in the Department of North Carolina, the unit moved to Virginia where it was brigaded under
Generals H. Cobb, T. R. R. Cobb, Wofford, and DuBose. The 24th Infantry Regiment fought in the difficult campaigns of the Army of Northern
 Virginia from the Seven Days Battles to Gettysburg, then moved to Georgia with Longstreet. The 24th was engaged at Chickamauga, and
 did see action in the Knoxville Campaign. The regiment returned to Virginia and participated in the conflicts at
The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor, was active in the Shenandoah Valley, and ended the war at Appomattox.

The Battle of Fredericksburg was fought December 11–15, 1862, in and around Fredericksburg, Virginia, between General Robert E. Lee's Confederate Army of Northern Virginia
and the Union Army of the Potomac, commanded by Major General Ambrose Burnside. The Union Army's futile frontal attacks on December 13 against entrenched
 Confederate defenders on the heights behind the city is remembered as one of the most one-sided battles of the American Civil War, with Union casualties more
than twice as heavy as those suffered by the Confederates. Sumner's original order called for the division of Brig. Gen. Winfield S. Hancock to support French and Hancock 
sent forward his brigade under Col. Samuel K. Zook behind Palmer's. They met a similar fate. Next was his Irish Brigade under Brig. Gen. Thomas F. Meagher.
By coincidence, they attacked the area defended by fellow Irishmen of Col. Robert McMillan's 24th Georgia Infantry
