Since "The Battle Cry of Freedom" is about the american civil war, I would like to discuss and talk about other civil war games on the internet.
I'm working on different civil war games since 2008, so I will start with some of my own work :D

The Blue and the Grey (For Empire Total War)



North and South (For Napoleon Total War)



North and South - Gettysburg special (Mini Series)

Episode 2:

North & South: First Manassas (For Napoleonic Wars DLC)



Other awesome games!

Scourge of war: Gettysburg


Ageods - The American Civil War

I'm always a fan of the 6th Wisconsin Infantry. I like the style of their western uniforms!

Really excited. I sincerily hope it won't be as much pistolwhipping there is in some of the Warband mods. Good luck!

Lol.. that wasnt that nice, Svensson! ;)
And I think, the battle cry of freedom wont have perfect balance in its first alpha..  ::)

This mod will be set 50 years after the Napoleonic Wars. The united states are divided in two factions!

The Union and the Confederate States of America. Both sides fight in the biggest war on the american continent: The American Civil War 1861-1865

The first version of this modification will feature the Battle of Manassas, which was the first big battle of the Civil War.
On July 21st, 1861 both armies clashed near Manassas junction and the river bull run. It should be the first and last battle of the war

I would like to thank the secession team and its contributors for their cooperation, naming here Azrooh, Austro and Rigadoon for some of their fancy civil war stuff and support.
Beside that, credits go to berserkergang and Kopcap! Special credit goes to total war modder Primergy and his "North and South" mod for NTW.
A great cheer to the Second Carolina String Band and California State Fife and Drum Corps for their music contribution to turn the game into a deeper civil war atmosphere.


• Fight as one of the two combatants - the Union or the Confederacy!
• Many differences between factions while remaining balanced!


• At the battle of Manassas, uniforms in the army weren't regular at all. Confederates troops in blue, New York regiments in grey. It was a very colorfull and mixed battle!
• A large amount of high-quality, historically accurate uniforms for each side!
• Many uniforms of famous regiments and brigades! Fight with the maltese cross of the 20th Maine on your kepi, in the uniform of the iron brigade, and many more!


• A large amount of high-quality, historically accurate uniforms for each side!
• A large variety of in-game banners for each side!


• A wide array of historically accurate weapons!
• Fight with smoothbore muskets, rifled muskets, shotguns, breechloaders, revolvers, and repeating rifles!
• There's a good variety of swords to use as well!


• Firearms with realistic accuracy and damage!

If you have problems with your NW key (NW is not installed), please do the following:

- Right click on Mount & Blade: Warband on steam and select view CD key.
Copy the Napoleonic Wars serial code or keep it open.

- Click Start > Run
- Enter regedit, right click to open with administrative rights
- A new window will open, browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > MountAndBladeWarbandKeys
- Search the entry, serial_key_nw,
- If it doesent exist, make a string value with that name and enter your cd key there.
- make sure that the value is the same as your CD key. Also make sure that the key is separated correctly. Double click the entry and modify it until it is correct. Watch out for invisible spaces in the CD key.
- If you are done with that, close the Registry Window and start the installer, and have fun playing!
