Ser a 2 reasons I vont to hev sis nais dshermen accent:

1.: I'm German. :D

2.: The biggest group of foreign soldiers were Germans. 1860 there lived 1.3 millions of in Germany born people in the USA. 50% of them were willing to fight in the war which was the biggest percentaged amount from all ethnic groups.

Du ez Germon, butz du kon not eben faik ein faik Germon akzent... Es ist sehr schlect, ja... schlect.

German needs to be in this game, for sure. Get a good voice actor for a German-American English accent. WOuld be awesome to hear, and I would like, totes... like, seriously use it.

The Dutch definitely had presence in the war, but nowhere near the Germans and the Irish. There were regiments made up entirely of Germans and Irish... The Italians, Spanish, and Swedish I'd say are just slightly above the Dutch.

Irish were in the war also. And Italians. And Polish. Hell there were even some North Africans fighting on both sides (As Zouaves too!).

The US Army was diverse to the point of insanity.

I expect that there will be a Canadian accent option.

In theory we could do huge player numbers far over 500 players per server...  As such we will surely keep our promise to deliver you the 500 players per server.

We will probably go (far) over it, but that's for later.

The immigrants fought willingly for their new home, America. Unfortunately, the split in the nation caused Irish to fight against Irish, German to fight against German, etc., etc. It's a shame, really.

One thing I would note is that Northern and Southern accents actually weren't that different before the war - it was following the Civil War that the southern accent began to develop its own identity, due to the tense relationship between the North and the South.

I know this might sound kinda silly, but if you do have a german accent could you have the immortal phrase: "gott shutze den Kaiser!" Yeah, I know it doesn't really have any real meaning in the Civil War but it would be a nice homage to the mod (and it would be funny to someone who isn't too fluent in German :P)

"Gott mit Uns!" was the official battle cry of the 8th New York Volunteers. The regiment was entirely German, including the superior command staff.

8th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, "The German Rifles" They were the first designated "German Rifles." The 28th New York was the "Second German Rifles," and the 45th New York was the "Fifth German Rifles/Rangers." The 52nd New York was the "Third German Rifles." Idk where the 4th was, probabl a non-New York regiment.

The 52nd were the Sigel Riflez.
The 68th were the 2nd Germa Rifles

There's a poem written by a Dutch-American during the war. I forgot how it went, but it ended with 'Op voor het Tweede Vaderland!', which means as much as 'Up for the Second Fatherland!'

Dutch immigrants saw, like many Germans and other immigrants, the USA as their new fatherland and wanted to fight for it. Them there are the obvious boredom/adventure reasons.

That being said, the Dutch contribution was small, alltrough we don't know the exact number. There certainly were thousands of soldiers with Dutch blood, but there's always the question when exactly someone stops being a Dutchman and becomes an American. Dutch immigration was centered around west-Michigan, by the way.
