1st Louisiana Zouave Battalion
"Coppen's Zouaves"


Who We Were

The 1st Louisiana Zouave Battalion, better known as "Coppen's Zouaves" was organized under French-born Lieutenant Georges Auguste Gaston Coppens in Pensacola Florida in early 1861, and was disbanded in southern Virginia in the winter of 1864. Although we were a Zouave Battalion from Louisiana, the Battalion was different from the infamous "Wheats Tigers," who fought under the designation of the 1st Louisiana Special Battalion under Maj. Chatham Roberdeau Wheat. Many of its men were battle-hardened French from the Crimean War, as well as other European immigrants from Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Spain and Ireland. The original enrollment of the battalion consisted of 616 officers and enlisted troops, 52 of which were killed in action, 26 died of disease, and 2 more died in accidents. 6 companies were mustered at the beginning of the regiment's life. The 5th Company in the Battalion were English-speaking and American born. The 3rd Company consisted of French and French Creole speaking men, many of whom were Cajun, French and Swiss. The others consisted of the aforementioned other Europeans. Their battle honors consisted of the Battle of Williamsburg, the Battle of Seven Pines, the Seven Days Battles, the Battle of Gaines' Mill, the Battle of Frayser's Farm, the Seige of Harpers Ferry, the First Battle of Bull Run (Manassas), the Battle of Antietam, the Battle of Fredericksburg, the Battle of Gettysburg, and the Siege of Suffolk.

Who We Are

This regiment is going to be oriented towards all players in the linebattle game genre, regardless of skill or experience.  We look forwards in not only playing BCoF with you, but other games as a community as well.  We aim to be a historically faithful and accurate regiment, with reflecting ranks and chain of command. As seasoned players of the genre, we hope to eventually participate in competitive events as the development of the game continues.

Christ almighty this situation blew out of control. I talked to Marcy and we came to a consensus on what was going on. I never wanted to start any trouble within this community, and quite frankly I feel kinda bad for whats going on. I've tweaked the thread to prevent further miscommunication. My apologies to everyone here.

You caused absolutely no drama at all, quite frankly the post wasn't even about you, I just made that post after seeing your situation. It needed to be said, and I said it because I figured I could try to let the devs see what the small community wants. Cheers bro, good luck!
