The Irish Brigade


The Irish Brigade was an infantry brigade, consisting predominantly of Irish Americans, that served in the Union Army in the American Civil War. The designation of the first regiment in the brigade, the 69th New York Infantry, or the "Fighting 69th", continued in later wars. The Irish Brigade was known in part for its famous war cry, the "Faugh a Ballaugh", which is an anglicization of the Irish phrase, fág an bealach, meaning "clear the way" and used in varius Irish-majority military units founded due to the Irish diaspora. Of all Union army brigades, none suffered more combat dead than the Irish Brigade during America's Civil War.

Eastern Iron Brigade
under the command of
Brigadier General Patriots

The Eastern Iron Brigade, also known as the Iron Brigade of the East and First Iron Brigade, was a brigade of infantry, that served in the Union Army's Army of the Potomac, during the American Civil War. For much of its service, it was designated as the 1st Brigade, 1st Division, I Corps. Among its commanding officers were General John P. Hatch and General Walter Phelps Jr.. Noted for its reliability in battle, the brigade developed a reputation which remained after it was disbanded late in the war, due to its annihilation from extremely high casualties.

Our History

North and South
Quote from: Museal
The Dixieland Army Union Brigade was first thought up back in March 2014 to address the longterm issue of a lack of Brigade/Army structure or support for the communities North American Union Regiments. We had noticed a severe lack of active Union Regiments for Brigade Linebattles and wanted to see what we could do to help it come about, not just because we think we can help out, but also due to the need for our own North American Confederate Regiments organized into Braggs Brigade to have a decent opponent on NA servers for NA events. We looked across the community and spent six months collecting data about the NA Union and shared our results with the Union Army, who sadly was unable to help longterm with the NA community but who graciously allowed us to form this Union Brigade. We then spent a month getting things ready and talking to other regiments in the community, all of which leads us to today.

Battlecry of Freedom
In late 2018 the remainder of the North American regiments within the Union Brigades decided to move on to Battlecry of Freedom if the North and South mod for Mount and Blade was to die out. So we started making plans to move the Union Brigades over to Battlecry of Freedom with granted permission of Major General Museal in case the module took it's last breath. The plan was to keep playing North and South while also attempting to grow the Union Brigades for Battlecry of Freedom so we could one day carry on attending and hosting events on there. We mainly made this decision to preserve the name, reputation and memories of the Union Brigades while also wanting to move on to a more popular, yet recognizable game. The last thing we'd like to see is the Union Brigades dissapearing together with North and South. And though we have gone through many hardships as a community; our determination of staying active, alive, respected and recognized will hopefully lead us to our set goals within this new game and it's surrounding community.

Last Notes

Our community rules, standards and guidelines will stay the same as the ones we used to have within the Dixieland Army.
This is an updated topic from the original thread which was created for North and South by Museal, The Union Brigades.

Brigade System
The Union Brigades Brigade System is rather simple, which makes it excellent for us to use for organizational and linebattle purposes. All regiments are invited to a brigade after a few weeks so that you can get to know us, and we can get to know you. When a General slot is open all regimental leaders get a vote for the Generals, which are counted and verified by a neutral highranking member of the community. The Brigadier General runs the Brigade in terms of organization and leading on the field of battle.

An open letter to our former staff
Thank you Museal and the remaining staff of the Dixieland Army for giving us the most amazing community a mod like North and South could have. Together we have created such great and unreplaceable memories. We owe you a lot, our gratitude and respect for you and the other remaining members is immeasurable. All the years you have put into this community will not go to waste, that is a promise that we will be sure to keep. In a way this feels like the end of an era, your resignation certainly had an effect on us. We hope that you and the rest of our former staff go on to live amazing and prosperous lives after closing your administrative chapters with this community.

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 in 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 as part of the Eastern Iron Brigade within the larger Union Brigades and Dixieland Army. The regiment was and still is primarily active on North and South, which is a mod for Mount and Blade: Warband; Napoleonic Wars DLC. In 2017 we underwent a full reorganization due to Dovahkiin's resignation as Colonel, at this point North and South had far surpassed it's peak in popularity, and attendance during events was beginning to decrease. As a direct result of said dwindling numbers, we began to search for another game that would spark our interest. It was then decided in late 2018 to move on to Battlecry of Freedom if North and South were to die out. We are currently active on both games and always looking for new members.

Work In Progress
