32nd New York Infantry Regiment
1st California Volunteers
The 32ndNY is the extension of the prestiged 32nd Regiment of Foot, from the game Mount and Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars into Battle Cry of Freedom. It was founded in the year 2011 and has stood strong ever since. During this time it grew to hold four different companies and was one of the largest and most battle hardened regiments in the community.
We have always been able to bring the most authentic, disciplined, and fun experience to our members. We pride ourselves in the respect and use of authentic drills and formations of the respective time period, while keeping a level of discipline unmatched by most. We pay great attention to the details of these drills and formations, however we do not expect every new member to get them first time: we have a team of experienced, kind and patient staff that are willing to help you and to guide you through your journey in the 32ndNY!
We hope to bring the same experience from our past to this community!
We will remain active in the Mount and Blade: Napoleonic Wars community while also starting afresh in Battle Cry of Freedom, playing linebattles in both games for the foreseeable future.
