Regiment History

Mustered in: November 1861 to March 1862
Mustered out: July 16, 1865

The following is taken from New York in the War of the Rebellion, 3rd ed. Frederick Phisterer. Albany: J. B. Lyon Company, 1912.

This regiment, Col. George H. Biddle, was organized at New York City March 6, 1862, by forming eight companies of the men enlisted, under Colonel Biddle, for the Warren Rifles, and two companies, I and K, of those enlisted under Col. J. P. Jenkins, for the 3d Regiment, Eagle Brigade (A, D and E—I; B, C and H — K). The men were mustered in the service of the United States for three years between November, 1861, and March, 1862. Company F was mustered out November 6, 1864. At the expiration of its term of enlistment, about March 25, 1865, the men entitled thereto were mustered out and the regiment retained in service, but consolidated into five companies, A, D, E, H and I, Companies B, C, G and K being transferred to the others.
The companies were recruited principally: A, B, C, D, G and H in New York city; E in Brooklyn and New York city; F at Haverstraw; I at Sing Sing; and K at Carmel, Peekskill, Sing Sing and White Plains.




The following is taken from The Union army: a history of military affairs in the loyal states, 1861-65 -- records of the regiments in the Union army -- cyclopedia of battles -- memoirs of commanders and soldiers. Madison, WI: Federal Pub. Co., 1908. volume II.

Ninety-fifth Infantry.—Cols., George H. Biddle, Edward Pye, James Creney; Lieut.-Cols., James B. Post, James Creney, Robert W. Bard; Majs., Edward Pye, Robert W. Bard, Abram S. Gurnee, Henry M. Jennings, Samuel C. Timpson, George D. Knight. The 95th, the "Warren Rifles," recruited mainly in New York city and vicinity, was mustered into the U. S. service at New York, from Nov., 1861, to March, 1862, for three years. It left for Washington, March 18, was attached to Gen. Wadsworth's forces in the defenses there and later to the Department of the Rappahannock at Acquia creek. With the 2nd brigade, 1st division, 3d corps, it participated in the Virginia campaign, suffering a loss of 113 at Manassas and the engagements leading up to it. In September, the division was transferred to the 1st corps; was active at South mountain and Antietam, and during the autumn took part in the operations at Philomont, Union and Upperville, Va. At Fredericksburg it was not placed in an exposed position, and at Chancellorsville and during the remainder of the war it served with the 5th corps, which was hotly engaged at Gettysburg, the 95th losing 115 in killed, wounded and missing. It was present at Rappahannock Station in October and shared in the Mine Run campaign. At Brandy Station, the winter quarters of the division, most of the members of the 95th reenlisted, securing its continuance as a veteran regiment. It was constantly engaged during the campaign under Gen. Grant in the spring and summer of 1864, lost 174 men at the Wilderness, and day by day thereafter suffered depletion of its ranks. Col; Pye was mortally wounded at Cold Harbor. The regiment was active in different stations before Petersburg, at the Weldon railroad, Poplar Spring Church, Hatcher's run, in the Hicksford raid, and in the Appomattox campaign. It was mustered out at Washington, July 16, 1865, having lost 119 by death from wounds and 136 from other causes, of whom 80 died in imprisonment.

Joining The Regiment

The 95th Infantry in North and South First Manassas are dedicated to enjoying the experience of the recreation of American Civil War combat. For those who want to learn more about what it means to be an infantry regiment during the American Civil War; which includes line infantry tactics and really bad jokes, then this regiment is for you. We attend line battles every Saturday and hope to attend more as our numbers increase. The only requirements are that you have access to Teamspeak 3 and understand English reasonably well. 

The Rules

1. Always listen to your officers and follow any orders given.

2. No team-killing during the event. Team-killing is not acceptable, if you are team-killed, tell an officer and they will deal with it.

3. Event attendance is expected. If you cannot attend an event please let an officer know. This is so we can get a rough estimate of the numbers we can bring to an event.

4. No abusive behaviour. Banter is encouraged, but hostility is not and it will be dealt with, know where the line is and don't cross it. If you witness this kind of behaviour within the regiment please report it to your commanding officer.

5. Anybody can recruit new members but ensure that you don't break any server rules whilst doing so. If you want to recruit on Union Brigade and Dixieland Army servers you must be wearing your Union brigade (UB) tags. If you do recruit somebody make sure you direct them to contact one of our commissioned officers by giving the new recruit the Steam name of the officer.

6. Remember it's a game. Have fun, have a laugh, don't take things too far and know where the line is.

If you want to join the regiment you can either contact https://steamcommunity.com/id/WIZEMAN2 on steam saying that you would like to join the regiment, or copy and paste the following into the thread with the relevant details.
