From Leipzig to Paris, the French will know fear!

History of the Battle of Leipzig
This regiment was originally a reserve regiment until 1813 were it was called to fight the bloody battle of Leipzig. This battle took place between 16–19 of October, 1813 and would result in nearly 92,000 dead or wounded. The 2te Gardes would fight bravely during these 3 days and would fight once more at the Battle of Paris.
The Austrian II Corps, commanded by General von Merveldt, advanced towards Connewitz via Gautzsch and attempted to attack the position by the time Napoleon arrived in the battlefield along with the Young Guard and some Chasseurs, or the Imperial snipers, only to find that the avenue of advance was well covered by French battery and some skirmishers who have occupied the houses there and did not permit the Austrians to deploy their artillery in support of the attack. Repulsed, the Austrians then moved to attack nearby Dölitz, down a road crossed by two bridges and leading to a manor house and a mill. Two companies of the 24th regiment threw out the small Polish garrison and took the position. A prompt counterattack ejected the Austrians and the battle seesawed, until the Austrians brought up a strong artillery battery and blew the Poles out of the position. The Poles left bodies everywhere in their furious defense and set fire to both the manor and the mill on the way out. General Kleist, moving along the Pleisse River, attacked Marshals Poniatowski and Augereau in the village of Markkleeberg. The Austrians repaired a bridge and took a school building and manor. The French counterattacked, throwing the Austrians out of the school and back over the river. French attacks on the manor only resulted in mounting casualties for the French and Poles. The Russian 14th Division began a series of flanking attacks that forced the Poles out of Markkleeberg. Marshal Poniatowski stopped the retreat and the advancing Russians. Catching four battalions of the Prussian 12th Brigade in the open, Poniatowski directed attacks by artillery and cavalry until they were relieved by Russian hussars. Marshal Poniatowski retook Markkleeberg, but was thrown out by two Prussian battalions. Austrian grenadiers then formed in front of Markkleeberg and drove the Poles and French out of the area with a flank attack.The Russian II Infantry Corps attacked Wachau near Leipzig with support from the Prussian 9th Brigade. The Russians advanced, unaware that French forces were waiting. The French took them by surprise in the flank, mauling them. The Prussians entered Wachau, engaging in street to street fighting. French artillery blasted the Prussians out of Wachau and the French recovered the village. Liebertwolkwitz was a large village in a commanding position, defended by Marshal MacDonald and General Lauriston with about 18,000 men. Johann von Klenau's Austrian IV Corps attacked with 24,500 backed up by Pirth's 10th Brigade (4,550) and Ziethen's 11th Brigade (5,365). The Austrians attacked first, driving the French out of Liebertwolkwitz after hard fighting, only to be driven out in turn by a French counterattack. At this point, Napoleon directed General Drouot to form a grand battery on Gallows hill. This was done with 100 guns that blasted the exposed Russian II corps, forcing the Prussian battalions supporting it to take cover. Russian General Württemberg was notable for his extreme bravery, directing his troops under fire. The hole had been now opened as Napoleon wished and at this point, Marshal Murat was unleashed with 10,000 French, Italian, and Saxon cavalry. However, Murat's choice of massive columns for the attack formation was unfortunate for the French force, as smaller mobile formations of Russian, Prussian, and Austrian cavalry were able to successfully harass Murat's Division, driving them back to their own artillery, where they were saved by the French Guard Dragoons. The young Guard Division was sent in to drive out the allies and give Napoleon his breakthrough. They recaptured both Liebertwolkwitz and Wachau, but the Allies countered with Russian Guard and Austrian grenadiers backed by Russian cuirassiers. The units lived up to their elite reputation, forming squares that blasted French cavalrymen from their horses and overran the French artillery batteries. On the southern front, although Napoleon gained ground, he could not break the Allied lines. The northern front opened with the attack by General Langeron's Russian Corps on the villages of Groß-Wiederitzsch and Klein-Wiederitzsch in the center of the French northern lines. This position was defended by General Dabrowski's Polish division of four infantry battalions and two cavalry battalions. At first sign of the attack, the Polish division attacked. The battle wavered back and forth with attacks and counterattacks. General Langeron rallied his forces and finally took both villages with heavy casualties. The Northern front was dominated by the battle of Möckern. This was a 4 phase battle and saw hard fighting from both sides. A manor, palace, walled gardens, and low walls dominated the village. Each position was turned into a fortress with the walls being loopholed for covered fire by the French. The ground to the west of the position was too wooded and swampy for emplacement of artillery. A dike ran east along the river Elster being 4 meters high. Marshal Auguste Marmont brought up infantry columns behind the positions in reserve and for quick counter-attack against any fallen position. Blücher commanded Langeron's (Russian) and Yorck's (Prussian) corps against Marmont's VI Corps. When the battle hung in the balance, Marmont ordered a cavalry charge, but his commander refused to attack. Later, an attack by Prussian hussars caused serious loss to the French defenders. The battle lasted well into the night. Artillery caused the majority of the 9,000 Allied and 7,000 French casualties, and the French lost another 2,000 prisoners.The battle of Leipzig is the bloodiest in the history of Napoleonic Wars because casualties on both sides were astoundingly high; estimates range from 80,000 to 110,000 total killed, wounded or missing. Napoleon lost about 45,000 killed and wounded. The Allies captured 15,000 able-bodied Frenchmen, 21,000 wounded or sick, 325 cannon and 28 eagles, standards or colours, and had received the men of the deserting Saxony divisions. Among the dead was Marshal Józef Antoni Poniatowski, a nephew to the last king of Poland, Stanisław August Poniatowski. The Pole, who had received his marshal's baton just the previous day, was commanding the rear guard during the French retreat and drowned as he attempted to cross the river. Corps commanders Lauriston and Reynier were captured. Fifteen French generals were killed and 51 wounded. Out of a total force of 380,000, the Allies suffered approximately 54,000 casualties. Schwarzenberg's Bohemian Army lost 34,000, Blücher's Silesian Army lost 12,000, while Bernadotte's Army of the North and Bennigsen's Army of Poland lost about 4,000 each. The number of casualties the Coalition army suffered made it impossible for them to pursue the retreating Grande Armee, but the French themselves were already exhausted after the battle, and they hurried back to France to begin their hard-fought defense until the early spring of 1814.

Soldier's Handbook
Movement Drills:

Form on me - Form a straight line behind the Commanding Officer

Moving out, march, quickmarch - Doesn't matter what you call it, your still following the officer as he moves.

Halt - Opposite of above, you stop.

Form a line on my (left/right/center) - form a horizontal line next to the Commanding Officer in the direction stated in the order.

Advances(Aggressive and Regular) - Aggressive advance is called by the Commanding Officer as a priliminary order, it is then followed by a march, this order requires that all people in the (horizontal) line march at once, still in a line, until the officer calls to halt. Regular advance is started with the order "Regular advance starting from the (left/right)" allowing for time to think, it is then followed by a march command, A regular advance differs from an aggressive advance in the fact that it is one person going forward at a time with a half second-one second delay before the next man.

Form on my (left/right/center) - Not to be confused with the stationary term, this one is done on the move it requires that, one by one, the line moves into that direction while still marching(One man steps out 1 step the next 2 and so on, unless it is center, which is first man steps 1 left, second 1 right, third 2 left.) The officer will then say "Prepare to halt, halt." Prepare to halt signifies he is about to call a halt, when the halt is called you should be able to fall into place with only minor gaps, which are to be dressed.

Dress the line - Dressing the line is simply removing any spaces within the line.

Form double ranks - Forming double ranks requires that the person in the back goes onto the left side of the line, followed by the person in front of him, this is repated until both sides are the same length or closest to same as possible.

Firing Drills:

Fire! - Explains itself really

Ripple fire starting from the(left, right,(inoften center)) - From the direction designated the first man fires, as soon as the next man sees the first has fired he fires, causing a ripple effect down the line.

Slow ripple fire starting from the left(left, right,(inoften center)) - Same as the ripple fire, but with a 1 second delay, unless otherwise stated.

Alternating ripple fire starting from the (left, right) - A more difficult form of ripple fire, used as a drill technique, you will learn it, you will hate it, but it will be there.

North & South: First Manassas / Story from the Bucktail Brigade (27th CT)
« on: November 30, 2012, 02:08:16 am »
Please Enjoy the following story written by a 27th CT member!
The 27th Connecticut Volunteers received orders to hold the left side of the river at all costs so that is what we did. The brave 27th Connecticut built a small wooden fence and anxiously waited behind the fortifications for the enemy. The 7 man line behind the fence then saw an approaching line of 16 men. The band of brothers from the 27th CT stood their ground and opened up on the approaching Confederates. The first volley took 3 of their men's lives. The confederates then knew where we were and opened up on us. It was a brutal fight but the 27th crushed their 16 man line with only one casualty. After, Sergeant Major Tate gathered my men and we were the first ones to cross the river. We saw the Confederate cannons firing through the brush. The arty had no idea we were flanking around the bush. We waited for the cannons to fire and we came out from hiding. "Fire"! I said. Then we charged. The arty was completely off guard when we emerged from the smoke. We could hear all around us the screams of the Confederates as we plunged our worn bayonets into the rebels beating chests. When the fighting ended and the 27th was successful SgtMaj Tate turned around and saw 6 rebels on the dirt, blood covering their faces. The Sergeant Major exclaimed to the brigadier general that the 27th took the whole left side and the arty is knocked out. We regrouped and I noticed we lost 2 men in the charge. 4 men charged the village despite the fact that we would perish. We entered the village and rushed inside the house that had 20+ men in it. We fired into it and charged, at the end of the round we ended up taking more than 20 lives in all. The next round we got orders to attack the right flank. We moved across the river and suddenly a line of 11 men shot at us. They all missed! We then took cover behind a rock and each took turns firing and retreating back behind the rock. We held it for 1 minute, taking fire constantly. Then the 18th Massachusetts showed up and supported us. We ended up driving the enemy back into the village. We regrouped and the brigadier general gave us the orders to charge. A cavalry regiment at the front of the charge with 18+ men following it. We all rushed into the village and forced the Confederates to retreat into the buildings. We all then rushed into the buildings, it was a massacre. Bodies of friends and enemies littered the floor. We kept pushing but the Confederates wouldn't back down, until are last force overwhelmed them and we were victorious! These were the actions of the 27th Connecticut and the Bucktail Brigade that day. A day which the rebels will rue and Union supremacy and unity was shown.

Regiments / 2nd Queen's Royal Regiment of Foot (Recruiting International)

The 2nd Queen's Regiment of Foot needs you! Join today and push back the armies of Napoleon! +20 active members and growing
History of the Regiment
The Regiment was first mustered on the 14th October 1661 on Putney Heath. It was formed to garrison Tangiers, which had been ceeded to England as part of the dowry of Princess Catherine of Braganza of Portugal when she married King Charles II in 1662. The Regiment was taken into the line as the 2nd Regiment. With this number the Regiment is the senior English Regiment, the 1st Regiment being the Royal Scots. The Regiment garrisoned Tangiers for 22 years until it was abandoned to the Moors.

After returning from Tangiers the Regiment fought for King James II at Sedgemoor in 1685 and with William III, against James, at the Boyne in 1690. The Regiment was then sent to the continent and fought at Landen (1693), the siege of Namur (July-Sept 1695), the siege of Tongres (9-16th May 1703) and Almanza in 1707.

The Regiment spent most of the 18th Century in extensive garrison duties in Ireland, Gibraltar and the West Indies. In 1793 it found itself being ordered to Sea! To help the Navy make up for the lack of Marines when the fleet was rapidly expanded on the outbreak of the French Revolutionary Wars. The Regiment served under Admiral Lord Howe off Ushant aboard the Flagship QUEEN CHARLOTTE and in the ROYAL GEORGE, DEFENCE, MAJESTIC and RUSSELL. On the 1st June 1794 the Regiment took part in a Fleet action which became known as the "Glorious First of June". This gave the Regiment the honour of an Infantry regiment being awarded a Naval Battle Honour, the right to have the Naval Crown on their colours, and their Officers the right to take the loyal toast sitting down in the Naval Tradition.

Over the next 15 years the Regiment would fight the French in the West Indies (1794-97), Ireland (1798), Holland (1799) and Egypt (1801), earning a battle honour in the latter place. It was then back to Gibraltar.

On the 19th August 1808 (2 days after the Battle of Rolica) 731 men of the the 2nd (Queen's Royal) Regiment landed at Porto Novo in Portugal as reinforcements for Lt Gen Sir Arthur Wellesley's army which had landed in Portugal in July 1808 and was present at the Battle of Vimeiro, where the French Marshal Junot was defeated.

With the intervention of Napoleon himself in Spain, Oct 1808, the British army, now under the command of Sir John Moore, was forced to retreat to Vigo and Corunna. Here the army embarked on ships for England, but not before a heroic rearguard action by the Queen's Royals, which earned the Regiment another battle honour.

A single company of the Queen's Royals had remained behind in Portugal, and when Wellesley returned to the Peninsula in April 1809 it formed part of the 2nd Battalion of Detachments. The company fought at the Battle of Talavera in July before returning home in August that year. Meanwhile the rest of the Regiment took part in the disastrous Walcheren Expedition, where the army died in their hundreds due to the weather and disease.

In 1811 the whole Regiment embarked for the Peninsular War once more, where it was involved in sieges of various French fortresses. At the Battle of Salamanca in July 1812 the Queen's Royals once again showed their mettle, but lost 109 men. The Regiment was way below strength during the battle and was just 408 strong. By January 1813 the strength of the Regiment had fallen so low that six weak companies were sent home, and the remainder were joined by four companies of the 53rd Regiment to form the 2nd Battalion of Detachments. They were present at the Battle of Vittoria in June 1813, and subsequently took part in the battles of the Pyrenees and Nivelle, and finally in April 1814 the Battle of Toulouse. At the close of the war the companies returned to England, where the Queen's Royals readied themselves for Garrison duty in the West Indies again! Meanwhile Napoleon made a last desperate attempt to regain his former power, but his dreams ended on the field of Waterloo.

The Regiment was not present at the Battle of Waterloo on 18th June 1815, but our unit is one of the many regiments that take part in the spectacular re-enactments that are held on the battlefield.
