Trenton 2015- 10/15 mile march

Awesome do you attend many events east. Also do you normally form with a unit in the BAR if so which one?

My group is part of the Continental Line organization. We attend 10 or more events per year anywhere from Vermont to Virginia.

Why is Century of War just ignored? It is a completed mod.

I feel like the fort had a much greater sand content considering it was on a beach head. Period drawings and paintings show this as well.

What faction is the US faction supposed to fight? I feel like you would definitely need a native American or "planes indian faction" for that.

Why wouldn't you use an 1870s Japanese regiment? Isn't that the period of time blood and iron encompasses?

Leader steam contact(link):

Battles in that period were very quick just as they were in the Napoleonic Wars. Each soldier had a very limited number of shots, and in the american revolution, shots for colonial forces were scarce due to powder supply. Engagements were short an deadly. Companies would send a limited number of volleys down rage due to casualties or lack of shot. Artillery was not something to mess with. If you have read any Plumb Martin (first hand account of Northern campaigns) you can see the effect artillery had on men. At the siege of fort mifflin Martin described rows of up to four men being taken out by cannon fire by single shots. At Monmouth he described legs being snapped like nothing in front of him.

And by the time you've got your smokepole shouldered properly you'll be run through with a bayonet.

Don't try to act like bayonet charges were that common in 18th century warfare, silly goose.

Prussian manual is best manual.  ;)

nobody had facial hair in the 1770s ya scrublords

Will new building models be a thing? The NW buildings are just too European.
