* * *

Počátek regimentu nás zavede zpět do roku 2019 kdy byl regiment pod velením Cpt. Jeanem, regiment se zúčastňoval eventů ve hře Mount & Blade Warband s modifikací North & South (N&S) Ten se hrál po dobu 2 let, nyní hrajeme hru Battle cry of Freedom.

Jako pluk se snažíme být silnou jednotkou, se kterou je třeba počítat. Jsme jediný regiment, který je veden v češtině. Cvičíme historické formace a taktiky, aby se do hry dostala co nejrealističtější skupina. I když jsme disciplinovaný pluk, zábava a přátelství jsou naše klíčové hodnoty. Respektujeme každého člena a nasloucháme mu. Jsme tu, abychom se bavili, protože všichni sdílíme nadšení a zájem o éru americké občanské války. Kromě bitev a tréninku můžete stále zamířit na náš teamspeak server (94.250.223.30:15147) Jsme jako rodina, která je otevřená každému. V regimentu je možnost získavat medaile a nové hodnosti. Regiment je součástí železné brigády, která spadá pod Union Army. Pokud si myslíte, že je tento regiment pro vás, přidejte si někoho z důstojníků na Steamu a oni vám rádi pomohou.

* About us  *

Iron Brigade was revived 7th of July, 2018 under the command of Brigadier General Fenton. It was the first United States Brigade made in the Confederate States Army. Given it's popular name, Union Colonels from various regiments in the Confederate States Army. The Iron Brigade, also known as The Black Hats, Black Hat Brigade, Iron Brigade of the West, and originally King's Wisconsin Brigade was an infantry brigade in the Union Army of the Potomac during the American Civil War. Although it fought entirely in the Eastern Theater, it was composed of regiments from three Western states that are now within the region of the Midwest. Noted for its strong discipline, its unique uniform appearance and its tenacious fighting ability, the Iron Brigade suffered the highest percentage of casualties of any brigade in the war.

* * *

Welcome to the 26th Wisconsin Volunteer Reg't. As a regiment, we strive to become a strong force to be reckoned with. We practice historical
drills and tactics to bring a realistic as possible roleplaying group to the game. In the 26th we also have different platoons, a Czechoslovakian,
and Worldwide platoon. Both platoons work together accordingly to achieve victory on the battlefield. Whilst we are a disciplined regiment,
having fun and friendship are our key values. We respect and listen to each member. We are here to have fun because we all share the
enthusiasm and interest for the American Civil War Era. Outside of line battles and training, you can still head on our Discord to have some
enjoyable conversations with the other members. The 26th is a family which is open to everyone who are mature and respectful.
If you think this regiment is for you, please add someone of the officers on Steam, and they'll gladly help you out.
               



HISTORY - 26TH WISCONSIN INFANTRY

In the early afternoon of July 1, 1863, several hundred soldiers
of the 26th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry advanced through the
town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. On that summer day, the
German–American regiment would suffer heavier losses than on
any other day during the American Civil War. Among its
members were John Held, a private in Company D, and Joseph
Seitz, a private in Company K, the author’s 4th great-uncles. John
Held was born in Prussia in 1839. He and his elder brother Joseph
immigrated to the United States and settled in Racine, Wisconsin,
by the 1850s. When the American Civil War began he was living in
Racine and his occupation was listed as a cooper. On August 19,
1862, during the second year of the war, he enlisted in the Union
army for three years’ service around the age of twenty-three.
               
He was described at enlistment as having gray eyes, light hair, a
light complexion, standing five feet, five inches in height, and
having a slender build. Joseph Seitz was born on March 2, 1836,
in Heiligenzell, located in present-day Baden-Württemberg,
Germany. He and several members of his family immigrated to
the United States and settled in Wisconsin by the 1850s.
Joseph’s younger sister Marianna Seitz met and married Joseph
Held of Racine, Wisconsin, the brother of John Held. When the
American Civil War began he was living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
and his occupation was listed as a painter. Milwaukee, along with
Cincinnati, Ohio and St. Louis, Missouri, formed what came to be
called the “German Triangle” of settlement in the midwestern
United States in the mid-19th century.
               
On August 21, 1862, Joseph enlisted in the Union Army for three
years’ service at the age of twenty-six. He was described at
enlistment as having brown eyes, brown hair, a fair complexion,
standing five feet, four and one-half inches in height, and having a
medium build. Joseph and John were both mustered in on
September 17, 1862, and each was paid a bounty of $25. The 26th
‘Sigel Regiment,’ also known as the ‘Second German Regiment’ of
Wisconsin, named in honor of German-born major general Franz
Sigel, was composed almost entirely of men of German birth or
German parentage. On the day their regiment was organized in
Milwaukee, the bloodiest single-day battle of the war was fought
along Antietam Creek in western Maryland. John Held and Joseph
Seitz were both listed as being present with their regiment in 1862.



   
After a brief period of training at Camp Sigel in Milwaukee,
the 26th Wisconsin was transported by rail to Washington, D.C.,
in early October 1862 where it was assigned to the 2nd Brigade,
3rd Division, of General Sigel’s largely German 11th Corps,
recently attached to the Army of the Potomac, then stationed
around Fairfax, Virginia.

The 11th Corps was held in reserve during the disastrous Battle
of Fredericksburg in December, and John and Joseph were both
listed as present that winter as their regiment participated in
the infamous Mud March in January.

The near brothers-in-law were both listed as present throughout
the spring of 1863 as the Army of the Potomac again prepared
to fight the Army of Northern Virginia.
   



In early 1863, Sigel resigned as commander of the 11th Corps,
and corps command was given to Major General Oliver O. Howard.
The 11th Corps’ 3rd Division, to which the regiment belonged, was
commanded by Major General Carl Schurz, a German revolutionary,
and the 2nd Brigade was led by Polish-born Colonel Włodzimierz
Krzyżanowski. In late April and early May 1863, John, Joseph, and
the 26th Wisconsin participated in the Chancellorsville Campaign in
Virginia. During the evening of May 2, 1863, as the regiment rested
at the edge of a forest known as the Wilderness, Confederate
soldiers led by General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson attacked.
Jackson’s 28,000 men struck the exposed end of the 11th Corps, the
right flank of the Union line. The 26th Wisconsin formed into line of
battle and delivered several volleys into the advancing Confederates.
After a twenty-minute struggle, the Badger state Germans were
forced to retreat. In its first battle, out of 471 engaged, the 26th
Wisconsin suffered 204 casualties in killed, wounded, and missing,
including their colonel, the fifth-highest losses of any northern
regiment on the field.
               
After the Union withdrawal back across the Rappahannock
River, John and Joseph were with their regiment as the Army of the
Potomac pursued the Confederates northward into Pennsylvania. In
the morning of July 1, 1863, the 26th Wisconsin and the rest of the
11th Corps were encamped around Emmitsburg, Maryland when they
received word that Confederate infantry were advancing in force near
the small town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Wisconsin Germans
set out on a forced march north towards Gettysburg. After a fatiguing
thirteen-mile journey, the regiment arrived in the borough by early
afternoon and rested in a peach orchard at the northern edge of town.
Krzyżanowski’s brigade eventually received orders to advance across
the plains of Gettysburg to reinforce Brigadier General Francis Barlow’s
exposed 1st Division of the 11th Corps, positioned on a knoll owned by
farmer John Blocher. As the 26th Wisconsin advanced on the right of
the brigade, the regiment engaged Georgians of George Doles’ and
John B. Gordon’s brigades. The regiment exchanged volleys with the
Confederates but was eventually flanked and forced to retreat through
the town of Gettysburg.
               
The regiment was positioned on Cemetery Hill during the
second and third days of the battle and not engaged. For his actions in
the battle, John Held was promoted to the rank of Corporal, dated
July 1, 1863. During three years of service, the 26th Wisconsin Infantry
lost 191 men, including Corporal John Held, killed and mortally
wounded, the fourth-highest percentage of any Union regiment. Colonel
James Wood, commanding the 3rd Brigade, 3rd Division, 20th Corps, in
his official report, said this of the conduct of the 26th Wisconsin in the
Battle of Peachtree Creek: “Where all behaved well, it may be regarded
as invidious to call attention to individuals, yet it seems to me I cannot
discharge my duty in this report without pointing out for especial
commendation the conduct of the Twenty-sixth Wisconsin Volunteer
Infantry and its brave and able commander. The position of this regiment
in the line was such that the brunt of the enemy’s attack fell upon it. The
brave, skillful and determined manner in which it met this attack, rolled
back the onset, pressed forward in a counter charge and drove back the
enemy, could not be excelled by the troops in this or any other army, and
is worthy of the highest commendation and praise.”

forced to retreat. In its first battle, out of 471 engaged, the 26th
Wisconsin suffered 204 casualties in killed, wounded, and missing,
including their colonel, the fifth-highest losses of any northern
regiment on the field.
               
After the Union withdrawal back across the Rappahannock
River, John and Joseph were with their regiment as the Army of the
Potomac pursued the Confederates northward into Pennsylvania. In
the morning of July 1, 1863, the 26th Wisconsin and the rest of the
11th Corps were encamped around Emmitsburg, Maryland when they
received word that Confederate infantry were advancing in force near
the small town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Wisconsin Germans
set out on a forced march north towards Gettysburg. After a fatiguing
thirteen-mile journey, the regiment arrived in the borough by early
afternoon and rested in a peach orchard at the northern edge of town.
Krzyżanowski’s brigade eventually received orders to advance across
the plains of Gettysburg to reinforce Brigadier General Francis Barlow’s
exposed 1st Division of the 11th Corps, positioned on a knoll owned by
farmer John Blocher. As the 26th Wisconsin advanced on the right of
the brigade, the regiment engaged Georgians of George Doles’ and
John B. Gordon’s brigades. The regiment exchanged volleys with the
Confederates but was eventually flanked and forced to retreat through
the town of Gettysburg.
               
The regiment was positioned on Cemetery Hill during the
second and third days of the battle and not engaged. For his actions in
the battle, John Held was promoted to the rank of Corporal, dated
July 1, 1863. During three years of service, the 26th Wisconsin Infantry
lost 191 men, including Corporal John Held, killed and mortally
wounded, the fourth-highest percentage of any Union regiment. Colonel
James Wood, commanding the 3rd Brigade, 3rd Division, 20th Corps, in
his official report, said this of the conduct of the 26th Wisconsin in the
Battle of Peachtree Creek: “Where all behaved well, it may be regarded
as invidious to call attention to individuals, yet it seems to me I cannot
discharge my duty in this report without pointing out for especial
commendation the conduct of the Twenty-sixth Wisconsin Volunteer
Infantry and its brave and able commander. The position of this regiment
in the line was such that the brunt of the enemy’s attack fell upon it. The
brave, skillful and determined manner in which it met this attack, rolled
back the onset, pressed forward in a counter charge and drove back the
enemy, could not be excelled by the troops in this or any other army, and
is worthy of the highest commendation and praise.”
