Under the command of the prestigious and wealthy patriot, WADE HAMPTON, The EDGEFIELD HUSSAR CAVALRY REGIMENT Has been raised! We offer glory, fame, and money to those who are willing to volunteer for our unit! We need strong, able bodies to aid in our fight!

Unit History:
The Edgefield Hussars were raised as a part of Hampton’s Legion, a brigade with multiple branches of arms. They were raised from Edgefield County, South Carolina. It had roots in militia raised in South Carolina in 1833, by Andrew Pickens Butler. It was formed into Edgefield Squadron in 1851, and it fought beside the Hampton Legion in multiple battles across the East Coast Theater. It was commanded by Captain Matthew Calbraith Butler through the war.

The Trooper is the basic rank. He is the basic backbone of the Cavalry Unit. He rides in the ranks along with the others. Unlike the Trainee, this rider must distinguish himself.

The Prime Trooper is a trooper who has shown his strength. He is a trooper who has done the best he can to show he deserves to move up. Is beginning to be noted by the command with greater respect.


This is a trooper who has shown extreme prowess in combat. From here he chooses one of two branches: Dragoons or Hussars.
