Regiments / 3e Regiment de Grenadiers-a-Pied *Disbanded* [EU]
« on: May 27, 2018, 02:15:20 am »

The Dutch grenadiers were a French guard regiment from 1810 until 1813. They were originally formed out of Louis Bonaparte's Royal guard.

Early history

On the 9th on July the Dutch grenadiers than the Le 2me Régiment de grenadiers à pied de la Garde impériale were added to the imperial guard. Still dressed in the Dutch uniforms they start their march to Paris where they served for over one and a half year as palace guard.


The Dutch Grenadiers were one of the only regiments to use white uniforms. When they were first added to the guard they had worn the old royal guard uniforms. They kept that uniforms but with adjustments. Before they had bowl buttons with the Dutch lion on them that was changed into flat ones with an imperial eagle. Unlike other foreign regiments they did not had a copper plate with a N and an eagle they had no plate. Their Pouch with the standing Dutch lion was changed into one with the imperial eagle. Their bearcaps differed with the one from the 1st and 2nd grenadiers of the guard. They had 45 cm tall bearskins and where thinner while the 3eme had 40 cm tall bearskins and where wider.

Russian campaign

On 16 August, the Army arrived at Smolensk, the town being defended by 120,00 Russian troops. By 1 in the morning of the 17th of July, Smolensk was in French hands. The stench of the quickly decaying corpses prevented the Guard from enjoying the pleasures of victory in the town. On the 19th, a Russian general, found hiding in the town, refused to surrender and was bayoneted by the Grenadiers. On the 24th, the army began to quit Smolensk, for the Russians were withdrawing to defend Moscow. The Regiment survived Borodino intact, like the rest of the Guard Infantry who saw no action even after repeated requests that the Guard would tip the battle in Napoleon’s favour rather than a long drawn out stalemate. After Krasnoj the 3eme only had 40 men left and only 7 had reached the fatherland after the campaign.

1-i Yegerskii polk

== History ==

The quality of Russian skirmishers varied. It was said that until 1806 they were below European average. During the numerous wars (vs French, Poles, Turks and Swedes) they improved greatly and matched the French in 1813 and 1814. However the opinions about their quality were mixed. The Prussians, who fought the Russians in 1812, considered the jägers to be competent skirmishers. According to von Clausewitz the jägers at Borodino fought in the skirmish line with great dexterity. (Clausewitz - "The Campaign of 1812 in Russia" 1992, pp 162-157)

Russian commander Chichagov however claimed that Russian infantrymen (not specifically jagers) had not enough wit and adroitness to fight in skirmish order. Barclay de Tolly considered the French skirmishers superior to the Russians in agility and marksmanship and more effective in the woods. Only after 1812 the abilities of French skirmishers significantly declined.
Admirers of the skirmish tactics were Suvorov and Kutusov. Kutusov wrote several sets of notes on light infantry already in the 1780s.

Jägers (light infantry) were usually the ones sent to skirmish. If there was insufficient number of jägers, the line infantry and eventhualy the grenadiers sent their own skirmishers. The troops were sent to skirmish by platoons or companies, which relieved each other in turn, or by entire battalions and regiments. For example a day before the Battle of Eylau, the Arkhangel Musketier Regiment was deployed as skirmishers to cover the withdrawal of the 4th Division. In August 1812 at Krasne, the whole 49th Jager Regiment was placed in front of the village in skirmish order.

There were however disagreements in the Russian army about the use of large number of skirmishers. Published in 1811 "On Jager Training" recommended the use of entire jager battalion (of 8 platoons) in skirmish order. The grenadier and strelki platoon were kept in reserve behind both flanks of the skirmish line formed by the remaining six jager platoons.
The skirmish line was formed this way: the soldiers of first rank formed the front chain, the soldiers of second rank formed the second chain, while the third rank formed a reserve behind the center. The skirmishers acted in pairs with 2 or 5 paces intervals between pairs, maneuvered according to drum signals and moved at a run (150-200 paces per minute). They were trained to use terrain features, to fire from standing, kneeling or lying position.

Barclay de Tolly was against using large number of skirmishers. In 1812 he wrote: "in the beginning of a battle one is to push out as few skirmishers as possible, but to keep small reserves, to refresh the men in the chain and [to keep] the rest behind formed in column. Heavy losses cannot be attributed to skillful actions of the enemy, but to excessive numbers of skirmishers confronted to the enemy fire."
In 1812 at Berezina a big number of jagers and line infantrymen were thrown into skirmishing in the overgrown terrain. They were shattered by French cuirassiers and 1,500 were taken prisoners ! (Riehn - "1812: Napoleon's Russian Campaign" p 384)
In 1813 de Tolly prescribed forming only 1/3 of the whole number of men sent to skirmish. (Zhmodikov - "Tactics of the Russian Army" Vol. II p 29)

The 2nd battalion took part in the Siege of Badajoz in spring 1811 and the Battle of Albuera, during which the regimental colours were successfully recovered after the colour-bearer was shot, in May 1811. The battalion captured the drums and the Drum Major's mace of the French 34e Régiment at the Battle of Arroyo dos Molinos in October 1811. It went on to fight at the Siege of Ciudad Rodrigo in January 1812, the Battle of Almaraz in May 1812 and the Battle of Vitoria in June 1813. It then pursued the French Army into France fighting at the Battle of the Pyrenees in July 1813, the Battle of Nivelle in November 1813 and the Battle of the Nive in December 1813 as well as the Battle of Orthez in February 1814 and the Battle of Toulouse in April 1814.

54th (West Norfolk) Regiment of Foot

In June 1794 the regiment embarked for Flanders for service in the French Revolutionary Wars. The regiment returned to England in 1795 but then embarked for the West Indies later in the year where it helped suppress an insurrection by caribs on Saint Vincent in 1796. A second battalion was raised in May 1800 to increase the strength of the regiment. Both battalions took part in the unsuccessful Ferrol Expedition in August 1800 and the subsequent equally unsuccessful attack on Cádiz in October 1800. Both battalions then embarked for Egypt for service in the French campaign in Egypt and Syria. They saw action at the Battle of Abukir in March 1801, the Battle of Alexandria later that month and the Siege of Cairo in June 1801. The 1st battalion also took part in the Siege of Alexandria where it encountered fierce opposition at Fort Marabout in August 1801: the battalion eventually carried out a successful assault on the fort. The battalions amalgamated again in May 1802 and the regiment moved to Gibraltar in 1803.

In early 1807 the regiment embarked on the Second invasion of the River Plate under the leadership of Sir Samuel Auchmuty: it saw action at the Battle of Montevideo in February 1807 and Second Battle of Buenos Aires in July 1807. The regiment was sent to Stralsund in Swedish Pomerania 1810 and remained there until the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815: its only involvement at Waterloo was capturing Cambrai in the aftermath of the battle.

The regiment was sent to South Africa in 1819 for service in the Fifth Xhosa War. It moved to India in 1822 and to Burma in 1824 for service in the First Anglo-Burmese War: it formed part of an army which advanced up the River Irrawaddy to the Kingdom of Ava before returning to India in 1825 and embarking for England in 1840.

66e Dernier Royal Batallion

Une nouvelle 66e demi-brigade d’infanterie de bataille fut créée par l’arrêté du 12 floréal an 11 (2 mai 1803), relatif à l’organisation de plusieurs demi-brigades dans les colonies, au moyen des différentes troupes réparties dans les possessions d’outre-mer.
Cette demi-brigade devait être organisée à trois bataillons, et composée des :
- 2e et 3e bataillons de la 66e demi-brigade de bataille ;
- 3e bataillon de la 15e demi-brigade de bataille ;
- Un détachement de la 79e demi-brigade de bataille.

Le journal militaire de l’an 13 donne un « Etat indicatif des bataillons et détachements ayant fait partie des divisions de troupes qui étaient à Saint-Domingue, à la Guadeloupe et à la Martinique, et devant entrer dans la composition des régiments d’infanterie de ligne et légère, en vertu de l’arrêté du 12 floréal an 11 ».
Ce document donne pour le 66e de ligne les renseignements suivants :
66e régiment d’infanterie (ce régiment doit se reformer à la Guadeloupe).
Ce régiment se compose de tous les détachements et individus quelconques des corps ci-après :
2e et 3e bataillons de la 66e ;
3e bataillon de la 15e. (Ce n’est pas le 3e bataillon du 15e régiment actuel, mais le bataillon de la 15e demi-brigade, qui était allé à la Guadeloupe avant l’incorporation en quatre bataillons.)
Détachement de la 79e qui est allé à la Guadeloupe.
On réorganise un bataillon de ce régiment, pour en former le dépôt. Les individus qui arriveront en France seront dirigés sur la Rochelle.

1st U.S. infantry Regiment

On 3 March 1791, Congress added to the Army "The Second Regiment of Infantry" of which today's First Infantry draws its heritage. In September of that year, elements of it and the original 1st Infantry Regiment (today’s 3rd United States Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard)), with sizable militia complements, all under command of General Arthur St. Clair, were sent against the Miami Indians. St. Clair served as a major general in the Revolutionary Army and was now appointed "General in Chief," superseding the first commander of the regiment, Josiah Hamar. Fighting against the Miamis, St. Clair's soldiers were untrained, ill equipped, underfed, and sickly. This resulted in a disastrous defeat, at the Battle of the Wabash, in which the entire U.S. Army suffered a loss in killed and wounded of nearly 900 out of a total strength of 1,400.

Legion of the United States
In 1792, Congress created the Legion of the United States, which was a combined arms force of infantry, cavalry, and artillery under the command of Major General Anthony Wayne. MG Wayne had become a hero of the Revolutionary War when he led a small force against a larger British force to regain control of Stony Point, a crucial point on the Hudson River just south of West Point, New York. This Legion in which the Second Infantry became the "Infantry of the Second Sub-Legion," finally decisively defeated the Northwest Indian confederacy and its British support at Fallen Timbers in the Old Northwest (Ohio) on 20 August 1794.

War of 1812
In the War of 1812 the 2nd Infantry Regiment as well as the 7th and 44th Infantry Regiments, fought in the southern theater to include the Battle of New Orleans with General Andrew Jackson.

First Indian War period
The 2nd Infantry was consolidated May–October 1815 with the 3rd and 7th Infantry (both constituted 12 April 1808), and 44th Infantry (constituted 29 January 1813) to form the 1st Infantry Regiment. In the ensuing years the regiment was primarily concerned with Indian conflicts and the 1st was involved in the Black Hawk War of 1832 and the Second Seminole War from 1839 to 1842. During this time the regiment was commanded by many, now famous commanders including, Colonel Zachary Taylor, who would later become the 12th President of the United States and Second Lieutenant Jefferson Davis, who would become the President of the Confederate States in the American Civil War.

War with Mexico
When War broke out with Mexico in 1846 the 1st Infantry Regiment was sent across the border with General Zachary Taylor's Army and participated in the storming of Monterrey where the regiment fought house to house in savage hand-to-hand combat. From Monterrey the regiment was transferred to General Winfield Scott's command and participated in the first modern amphibious landing in American history at Vera Cruz in 1847.

Second Indian War period
Following the Mexican–American War, the regiment campaigned in the Texas area against the Comanches until the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861.

7th West Virginia Vol. Infantry

The 7th West Virginia (originally the 7th Virginia) was organized at Grafton, Portland, Greenland, Cameron, Morgantown and Wheeling, in western Virginia Along with men from the rolling hills of Monroe County in Ohio that is due East directory across the Ohio river from Marshal and Wetzel County, WV. between July 16, 1861, and December 3, 1861. It was initially attached to the Railroad District of West Virginia, and provided guard duty for the railroads against Confederate raiders.

There first action was a skirmish with the sheriff' of Tyler County WV.The unit was to hunt down and arrest this Confederate sympothiser. The 7th fought in the 1862 Valley Campaign in Nathaniel Banks' V Corps, seeing action in a number of small engagements before fighting in the Battle of Port Republic in late May. It was assigned to the II Corps and would remain in that organization for the rest of the war. A part of Nathan Kimball's brigade during the September 1862 Maryland Campaign, the 7th West Virginia took part in the attack on the Sunken Road ("Bloody Lane") at Antietam. Following the battle, the regiment helped garrison Harper's Ferry until the end of October, when it marched through the Loudoun Valley to Falmouth, Virginia. The 7th next saw action at the Battle of Fredericksburg in the II Corps assault, and participated in the ill-fated Mud March.

In late April and early May 1863, the 7th West Virginia participated in the Chancellorsville Campaign. In June, the regiment marched northward into Pennsylvania during the Gettysburg Campaign and took a defensive position on Cemetery Ridge on July 2. In the evening, along with the 4th Ohio and 14th Indiana, it was sent to help stop the attack of Jubal Early on Cemetery Hill. In the autumn of that same year, the 7th participated in the Mine Run and Bristoe campaigns.[1]
In February 1864, the 7th was engaged in fighting at Morton's Ford, and then took part in the Overland Campaign, including the Battle of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania, where it was involved in the attack on the Salient or "Bloody Angle." For the bulk of the year, the regiment was active during the Siege of Petersburg.

In early 1865, the 7th fought at the Battle of Hatcher's Run and then the fall of Petersburg. It subsequently marched in pursuit of the retreating Army of Northern Virginia during the Appomattox Campaign. The regiment marched in the Grand Review of the Armies in Washington, D.C. on May 23 before being transported to Louisville, Kentucky.
The 7th West Virginia was mustered out of Federal service on June 1, 1865.

Confederates / 16th South Carolina Infantry [NA/ EU]

16th South Carolina Infantry

Greenville Regiment and the Greenville Boys) recruited its men in Greenville County. It was organized and mustered into Confederate service in December, 1861. The regiment moved to Charleston and for a time was stationed at Adams Run under General Hagood. During December, 1862, the unit was ordered to Wilmington, North Carolina and in May, 1863, to Jackson, Mississippi where it was assigned to General Gist's Brigade in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana. Later the 16th Regiment joined the Army of Tennessee. On April 9, 1865 the 16th consolidated with the 24th Infantry regiment to form the Consolidated 16th and 24th Infantry Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers. This consolidated unit surrendered on April 26, 1865 with the Army of Tennessee.

During the early part of the fall of 1861, C. J. Elford, Esq. of Greenville, S. C. had obtained authority from the Governor of the State to raise and organize a Regiment for State service for the period of 12 months service, and issued a call for volunteer companies to be raised in Greenville County. The different sections of the county soon met and organized ten companies, the required number for the formation of the Regiment. One of the companies, which was afterward designated as Company E, was organized in the lower portion of Greenville County, now known as Dunklin township by James McCullough who made a call for volunteers and soon obtained a sufficient number to organize the Company. He was assisted by A. J. Monroe of Laurens who brought up 10 or 12 of the boys from Laurens and joined him. The organization of the company was effected by the election of the following officers: James McCullough, Captain, A. J. Monroe, lst Lieutenant, Wm G. Vance, 2nd Lieutenant, Wm B. Browning, 3rd Lieutenant.

The ten companies which were now complete united and formed the Regiment which was designated as the 16th South Carolina Regiment. An election was held for Field Officers of the Regiment and the following were elected: C. J. Elford, Colonel; James McCullough, Lieutenant Colonel; W. B. Ivor, Major. On the 27th of November, 1861, E company met and took cars at Honea Path on the Greenville and Columbia railroad with 52 men to go into camp at Columbia, SC. No record of other Companies. The Company was in camp on the College Green of S. C. University for about one wee when it moved down to Camp Hampton some miles below Columbia.

The company was inspected and mustered into state service for the term of 12 months on the 12th day of December, 1861. Upon the reorganization of the Regiment, Capt. O'Neall was appointed Sergeant Major at the request of Colonel Elford and made a fine and efficient officer. He was elected Major in April 1862 which position he held until he was killed at Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia, while gallantly leading the Brigade Skirmish line. He was killed in front of the Regiment and his body was not recovered. Company E was designated as the color company of the Regiment and assigned the position in line as right center company. Sergeant H. L. Machem of the Company was the first color bearer of the Regiment, as were the two succeeding one, J. C. Arnold and Robert Gunnels.

About the 13th of December, the Regiment was ordered to Summerville, here to remain for 8 to 10 days, when it was moved to Charleston and went into camp at the race track where it remained until about the first of February, 1862. From Charleston they moved to Adams Run, a station on the Charleston and Savannah Railroad, and were ordered out to join General Johnston's Department. While at Adams Run, the Regiment participated in two battles, that of Pocotaligo and Johns Island and numerous skirmishes with Federal troops in that area. While at Adams Run, they suffered much from sickness losing a great many by death from fever and other causes. Among the number were two officers, Lieutenants Vance and Carter of Company E.

On the 28th of April, 1862, the Regiment was reorganized and changed from State to Confederate States service for 3 years or for the duration of the war. At this time a new election was held and James C. McCullough was elected Colonel, W.B. Ivor, Lieutenant Colonel and C. C. O'Neall, Major.

In March, 1863, the Regiment was ordered to Wilmington, NC, where they served for a while in that area and in spring of 1863 they were returned to the Charleston area. The men had become restless over the limited service they were having and rejoiced on May 4, 1863, when they received orders to be transferred to General Johnston's Army which was then in Mississippi. On the 6th of May, 1863, they broke camp at Adams Run and took cars for Charleston on their way to Mississippi where after eight days they arrived at Jackson, where they joined General Johnston's Army. General Johnston at that time was endeavoring to relieve Vicksburg which was under siege by General Grant, but was unable to reach that point in time to assist the Army which was there under Pemberton. The fall of Vicksburg was one of the most disastrous events that occurred during 1863. Vicksburg was surrendered on the same day that the battle of Gettysburg terminated in Pennsylvania, namely July 4, 1863. A large number of men surrendered to the Federal Army in Vicksburg but it is generally considered that many of them in due time got back into the Confederate Army and back into active service.

At this time the Regiment was placed in General States Rights Gist's Brigade and remained with him until he was killed at the Battle of Franklin. After service in Mississippi, the Regiment was transferred to the vicinity of Rome, GA, where they were on detached duty when the Battle of Chickamauga was fought. Gist and a portion of his Brigade were in this battle and lost 33 percent of their force. The 16th was later assigned to a portion of the North end of Missionary Ridge where they were engaged in that battle and later retired with Johnston's Army, engaging in all the battles that took place between Dalton and Atlanta. This was a distance of 100 miles and it was necessary that in this distance they cross three rivers. It is almost unbelievable the battles and engagements in which they were engaged during this period. They included battles at Ringgold, Tunnel Hill, Dalton, Resaca, Kingston, Cassville, Allatoona, Kennesaw, and Marietta before the final great battle of Atlanta was fought. After the Battle of Atlanta, in which the city was lost to the Federals, the Confederate Army retired to the little town of Fairburn, GA, 25 miles south of Atlanta, where they rested and recuperated before their return to the Tennessee Theater of War.

At this time Hood moved the Army of Tennessee back on almost the same route that he had pursued in following Sherman with engagements at Marietta, Tunnel Hill, Resaca, and Dalton. It appears that Hood's strategy was that by cutting the Western and Atlantic Railroad he would place Sherman in a position that he could not supply his Army from his base in Chattanooga, however Sherman followed him and pressed him so closely that he was unable to permanently complete this plan. Hood continued westward towards Tennessee apparently with the view of freeing that state from Federal domination. Hood's army crossed the Coosa River west of Rome and continued on into Alabama where he finally ended his march at Gadsden, AL. Sherman turned back, burned Atlanta and began his infamous march through Georgia and South Carolina.

It is difficult to follow all of the details of Hood's campaign in Tennessee, but we come now to two of the most important battles in which he engaged in that area, namely Franklin and Nashville. In the battle of Franklin, Hood attacked with his entire army across an open field against the Federal Army strongly entrenched in the little town of Franklin. The results were disastrous to Hood's Army. In this terrible battle, S. R. Gist who commanded the Brigade to which the 16th South Carolina was attacked was killed as well as five other Generals, including Generals Cleburne, Granbury, John Adams, O. F. Strahl, and John C. Carter. The Confederate losses were placed at 4,500, but this by many historians is considered too low, taking into consideration its strength after the battle, it would indicate the total losses form all causes was 7, 547. The 16th South Carolina lost 56 men in this fight. Most of them were buried in the McGavock Cemetery at Franklin and their graves are marked with their names.

Following this disastrous repulse was Hood's assault on the City of Nashville which as held by Thomas and his troops. This failed purely because Hood's Army had been so decimated they were unable to carry out their objectives. The record indicates there were only 15,000 of Hood's men actually under arms while Thomas had 27,000 for duty and 25,000 of his men took active part in the battle.

Fighting almost every step of the way, Hood's Army retreated pretty much over the road that they had pursued on their way to Nashville and finally from Tuscumbia to Iuka, to Corinth and to Tupelo, Mississippi. Here they went into camp on January 10th. Within six weeks, Hood had marched nearly 500 miles, had fought two desperate and bloody battles and had all but wrecked his army.

We now draw down towards the sad and tragic end of the history of Hood's army. In the spring of 1865, they were ordered to join Johnson who had been restored to the Command in South Carolina and they took up their journey to join at that point. Stanley Horn in his book, "The Army of Tennessee," says and I quote, "With the facilities at hand, it was no small physical task to transport an army corps - even the skeleton of an army corps - from Tupelo to South Carolina. The railroads were in frightful dilapidation; the highways were almost hopelessly ruined by the constant passage of troops, guns, and wagon trains. An idea of the circuitous routing involved may be gathered from the itinerary of Cheatham's corps. On January 25th, they left Tupelo on foot and marched to West Point, Mississippi, where they arrived on the 28th. From there they rode on the railroad cars to Meridian and thence to Selma, AL, through Demopolis. From Selma they went by steamboat to Montgomery, AL, and from there by train to Columbus, GA. From Columbus they marched to Macon, to Milledgeville, to Mayfield, where they again took the cars for Augusta, GA. Then they marched to Newberry, SC, and at last joined Stevenson's corps who had gone on ahead.

The 16th South Carolina's final battle was that of Bentonville. Here Johnston struck one last blow at Sherman's superior army, superior only in number, but he was defeated and finally on or about April 25th surrendered to the superior force against which he had so long opposed. At the surrender it gives out some idea as to the terrible losses which Hood, and later Johnston's army, had been subjected. The 19th Tennessee for example down to 64 men from its original 1,297, but the still held head high and their flags fluttered defiantly as they march to the camping place near Greensboro where they surrendered on the 25th of April, 1865. There is no record of the number of survivors of the 16th Regiment at the surrender, but they must have been few because they were consolidated shortly before with the 24th South Carolina Regiment which had also been reduced to too few a number to compose a Regiment.
