We are a newer regiment, formed in late March. We are part of the DA, have our own server and host multiple mod events. In game we are either skirms or infintry. In most battles we stand true to our history by holding our line, not retreating, and pushing on to victory or straight into a bloodbath. When charging we will make it the farthest, however we may sustain heavy losses. We have a ton of fun and are always looking for more members. So come join us.
" ✙ Company G "Lamar Rifles" ✙
Company G "Lamar Rifles" of the 11th Mississipi, wears the grey coats with eight red chest bars with a button on each end and grey trousers with a red stripe down the legs. They also wear "Hardee" style hats with an infantry bugle on the front. Company G are excellent shots and have accurate weapons and hence serve as our Light Infantry company.
The unit was formed in Oxford, Mississippi, and practiced military maneuvers and rifle tactics. The company decided to adopt the nickname, "Lamar Rifles" in honor of L.Q.C. Lamar, who was a popular local congressman. They also adopted the motto, "Semper Paratus," or "Always Ready!".
The regiment earned a hard fighting and dependable reputation, but they were also somewhat unruly. For these reasons they were often put in positions of vital military importance. During the Battle of Gettysburg the 11th filled the left flank of Pickett's charge and was one of only a few units to breach the Union lines. The 11th's soldiers were also reputed to have been excellent marksmen, and the men of Company G considered among the finest. Because of this prowess, they were often deployed as skirmishers for the regiment. Company G was the last company of the Confederate army to cross back into Virginia after the Battle of Gettysburg.
In all, the Lamar Rifles participated in 30 battles. Of the men that were in any battle, 20 were never wounded; 30 were wounded more than once; one man was wounded eight times; and one man made it through twenty-five battles without sustaining any wounds.
✙ Company A "University Greys" ✙
Company A "University Greys" of the 11th Mississippi, can be recognized by the grey jackets they wear and serves as our line infantry. They are expected to fare well in Melee rather than shooting, they charge and lead the way to glory for other to follow. The university greys are a disciplined force, holding the line when being charged and receiving shots, the pride of the regiment.
The "University Greys" were an "all-state" unit composed of students from the University of Mississippi at Oxford. They formed Company A of the 11th Mississippi Infantry Regiment and saw hard fighting in most of its major battles.
Their name "University Greys" derived from the gray color of the men's uniforms and from the fact that almost all of the Greys were students at the University of Mississippi.
The most famous engagement of the University Greys was at Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg, when the Confederates made a desperate frontal assault on the Union entrenchments atop Cemetery Ridge. he Greys penetrated further into the Union position than any other unit, but at the terrible cost of sustaining 100% casualties—every soldier was either killed or wounded." (said by hardy when he ran the regiment in 2012). Those that survived were turned back over into Company G and continued to fight until the final days of the war.
