24th North Carolina Infantry Regiment
« on: July 01, 2017, 04:11:36 am »





Welcome to the official "24th North Carolina" Regimental thread, formally founded on July 1st, 2017.







Before you read any further, it is important for all to understand that this group is a community first before it is a regiment. Hell, you don't even have to join the regiment to chill with us, if you just want to just chat and play games let us know. Do know though that your leader is both a University student and an ROTC Cadet who understands that life, family, and education comes first above all else. We assure all who join us the best flexibility we can offer for your schedule, and believe communication is key in achieving this. Should you understand this basic principle of our community, then you should never fear being chastised by our people.








Key word here, "SchedulING" not schedule. And yeah, you can rate your superiors too.

In the 24th NC, we don't appoint officers to you and force you to suffer for an hour if you don't care for someone's methods. Rather, all members are granted the opportunity to select from a list of available officers which display overall reputation and a schedule containing the officer's list of events. After you have been around for a period of time you can rate their performance as leaders.

Breakdown: You find an officer, view his schedule, go to his events, and attend one universal regimental event.
Most importantly, any other events you go to that are hosted by other officers are accounted for and will yield you extra points towards being promoted. ;)







TBA

Trust us, it'll be announced soon. Just give us some time to figure out who's doing what work. ;)

The 24th North Carolina was initially mustered in as the 14th North Carolina Volunteers, commanded by Colonel William J. Clarke. Under this name the only notable action carried out by the regiment in 1861 was shadowing Rosecrans in John B. Floyd’s army. They mustered in as the 24th in May 1862, still under Clarke’s command. They were then attached to Lee’s army and followed his campaign first in the battle of White Oak Swamp, and participated in the last battle of the Seven Days’ campaign at Malvern Hill. Eventually they participated in the Maryland Campaign, taking part in the destruction of the Union attack on the West Woods near the Dunker Church, in this same action performing a charge to dislodge the union from behind a stone fence, doing so, then shortly after being driven back by Union Artillery from the Cornfield. After the Maryland Campaign, they took part at the battle of Fredericksburg on Marye’s Heights, behind the famous stone wall where Burnside’s army was shattered. From here until 1864, they were stationed alternately in North Carolina and Virginia, taking part in 1864 in a battle at Suffolk against a regiment of Colored Cavalry, who were driven off, and those who were unhorsed fought to the last man, and after this, took part in the recapture of Plymouth, N.C. From the 10th of May onwards, they rejoined Lee’s army at Petersburg, taking up positions at Drewry’s Bluff. Throughout the Petersburg Campaign, they took part in the trench warfare actions of this brutal and bloody campaign, feeling the multitudes of tragedies that would echo the future First World War to come, being worn down until the capture of their whole regiment and its surrender at Sailor’s Creek, with only a handful surrendering at Appamatox.
