Historic Introduction
                                                                                                                                                   
The 13th Pennsylvania Reserve Infantry Regiment, also known as the 42nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, the 1st Pennsylvania Rifles, Kane's Rifles, or simply as the "Bucktails", was a volunteer infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. It was a part of the famed Pennsylvania Reserve Division within the Army of the Potomac for much of the early and middle parts of the war, and served in the Eastern Theater in a number of important battles, including Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg.

The regiment was initially issued .69 caliber smoothbore muskets, but some of the men would not accept them, insisting that they were a rifle regiment. They eventually received breech-loading Model 1859 Sharps Rifles, normally only issued to sharpshooters. Thus making them a rare exception within the ranks of the Union Army. The regiment would continue to carry them until being mustered out of service in 1864.

The 13th Pennsylvania Reserves were commonly referred to as the "Bucktails" for the distinct unit tradition of sticking bucktail's on their hats. The man credited with the idea, James Landregan, had enlisted in the "McKean County Rifles" and while walking by a butcher shop saw a deer hide and cut the tail off and fixed it to his hat. Colonel Kane noticed the tail on James' hat and quickly adopted it as the unit's nickname and insignia with everyone in hearing distance quickly going to the butcher shop and fashioning tails for their own hats. Their new distinctive isnsignia would become a compliment to their hunstman like accuracy on the battefield.

Regiment Information

Our regiment was first established on March 22nd of 2015 under Colonel Dovahkiin for a mod called North and South where we portrayed, you guessed it; the 42nd Pennsylvania. If we were forced to group ourselves into a certain playstyle we'd identify ourselves as a semi-serious regiment of skirmishers and sharpshooters who's focus lays more on having fun as a group and community than racking up the biggest bodycount. However, trying our hardest during an event is never off the table. We pride ourselves in our longevity and regimental history as one of the few remaining active regiments of our time on North and South and we wish to keep that streak of activity going when moving over to Battlecry of Freedom. Hopefully we can see eachother soon on the battlefield, or maybe even in our ranks?
