What we stand for
The 6th New York Infantry Regiment "Wilson's Zouaves" is a semi-professional, English-speaking group. Acting as an organized and disciplined unit of infantrymen, we serve to do our duty through thick and thin. We follow a simple code for our brotherhood: "Nec aspera terrent," or "Hardships do not deter us." No matter the difficulty ahead of us, we will persevere through any problem we come across because we do so together. We perform in events weekly, showcasing our good vibes and fun times for the whole community to witness.
The regiment also partakes in other activities with one another, such as grand strategy games, Minecraft, other modules and NW in M&B: Warband, and other games. The regiment has also conducted several occasions where members have met up to share drinks and ultimately just have a good time. Besides gaming, our members also partake in avid conversation regarding what interests them, including tabletop games, history, music, and more. The core concept of our regiment is a place for strangers to become friends and for friends to become brothers. Outside of events, members are encouraged to spend time with each other and to become friends outside of the game. We have had members from all over the globe, predominantly from the United States and Canada, and continue to encourage anyone who is interested to join and be a part of this community regardless of location.
Formation of the Regiment
The 21st was founded in 2015, under Colonel Eireman, Lieutenant Colonel Dimefan, Sergeant Major Thomas. Soon Dimefan and Thomas decided to move on from the 21st and Lieutenant Hanover Stepped up to help lead the regiment. But soon Hanover would have to step down as he was joining the Marine Corps the community was one that saw itself as a disciplined line infantry regiment and looked for perfection when it came to this. For this time the 21st history is recorded in the old forum post, posted here. Alexander and his brother Funnyfreak would soon take the reins of the regiment from Eireman and Hanover, ushering in a new age of the 21st. We moved over to Bcof to join this new experience. We joined the confederacy with the 14thVI due to a lack of union presence at the time we changed to the union under the 6thNY and joined Excelsior Brigade.
History of the Regiment
The 6th New York Infantry Regiment, also called "Wilson's Zouaves", was a unit of the Union Army during the American Civil War. It was organized at New York City on May 25, 1861. The Regiment was composed of 5 initial companies of A, B, C, and D. Companies E, F, G, H, I, and K were added May 25, 1861. It was made up primarily of gang members, ex-cons, and criminals from the Bowery section of New York City. Rumor had it that a man had to prove he'd served time in jail before he was allowed to join...
