4th North Carolina Cavalry
History of the Regiment
In April 1862, the Civil War was entering its second year and North Carolina was rallying to supply more troops for the Confederacy. The Partisan Ranger Act, passed by the Confederate Congress on April 21, prompted local leaders to recruit companies of irregular soldiers for service in the Confederate Army. Seven such companies were banded together into a regiment to form the 4th North Carolina Cavalry: a true cross-section of North Carolina, it contained soldiers from the largest urban areas and smallest rural areas from fifteen counties.
The 4th North Carolina saw action in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania, and was a part of General Lee's Army of Northern Virginia.
Who are we?
As of right now we are a small group of casual friends based in Europe, who have previously played mostly Napoleonic Wars another similar games. For now we wish to participate in any event we can. We are not actively recruiting at the moment, but we want to reserve the name.
