The link that follows should take you to a spreadsheet that you can view that has been created for a couple of purposes.

These Orders list every regiment that was part of the Army of Northern Virginia that was involved in the Maryland Campaign. The listing then has companies A - K (except J) listed. In each cell where you see an "X" it indicates that the webpages on this site have been read and checked against the official rosters of the campaign.

I have notated in the original spreadsheet who created what company and the date of formation, so if there are more than one group claiming a company name, you members can PM me and I will let you know who to contact so you can work out arrangements.

There is also, if you scroll down far enough, links where these rosters were found and below that, a revision and revision date as more companies are formed and added to the charts. I will be updating as I see the changes. Also below these links, starts a second chart which lists all the companies that are formed for the Confederate forces that are not officially associated with the Orders of Battle for Antietam. This doesn't make you wrong.

Good list, but I have to correct you on something, the 1st La is not the 1st LA regiment its the 1st La Zouave Battalion (Coppens Zouaves)

You missed my guys ;) We are Companies C & D - 1st Virginia Infantry Battalion - Jones' Brigade (there was a type-o; you put Jone's Brigade; there were two actual Jone's who actually spelled it like that - Jone's Division and Jone's Battery, but the Brigade commander's name was Jones so it would be grammatically correct to spell it Jones') - Jackson's Division - Second Corps - Army of Northern Virginia

Companies C & D - 1st Virginia Infantry Battalion - Jones' Brigade - Jackson's Division - Second Corps - Army of Northern Virginia

Good work on the spreadsheet Mr. Hill :)

Didn't realise we had that many people not making historical companies they will have to change them when the tool comes out haha.

I think they'll be able to make the companies but in-game they'll have to use the models and name of a different unit unless the devs suddenly surprise everyone with a load of new campaigns

Well they have said that for now the company tool will only allow those companies that fought in that campaign. The only way round it would be to make a temp company till there official ones released.

The 1st Sc Volunteers in Jenkins Brigade is incorrect, you probably put it like that not to confuse it with the other 1st SC Infantry's but just saying, its 1st SC Infantry, there was like 3 or 4 1st SC infantry's

Please clarify your intent by using the chain of command so I can locate it properly. Thanks.

Looking good chaps.

Nice to see the sheer variety of regiments represented. And how many have multiple companies already formed or forming.

I sincerely apologize to the community for not updating these records per the formation of units. There have been some things in my life beyond my control that have got in the way, AND, I am doing a mess of research and revamping the layout of these charts to reflect actual regimental company composition.

Thanks for understanding.

You can only have a company...informal associations can be made in the community however. But you cant reserve a regiment, much less a brigade.

Here's something different I think lots of you guys might find interesting and helpful in settling issues of multiple creators of the same units.
The following file in link form is an MHT format, but Dropbox doesn't allow for them to be viewed via it's settings ... you can however download it and hope your browser will display it. When doing this however, note that your browser will ask if you want to allow all content to be displayed, or something along those lines, there should be a dialog box on the bottom middle of your screen with an "Allow" button, or a red "X" to cancel the content.

Don't be afraid to cancel the content as all the information will come across as a linked chart ... as opposed to a mouse over highlight box.


Here's the Link to the Army of Northern Virginia above listed file. Enjoy. (https://www.dropbox.com/s/5aavu0d15z2dzeb/Army%20of%20Northern%20Virginia.mht?dl=0)

Please let me know if you can view this after download, I'd appreciate it.

UPDATED!

Well it almost took forever BUT!

Let's see if this works.

Latest UPDATED ORDER of BATTLE for CSA! (https://www.dropbox.com/s/t6puwv8f0xfn0hv/Army%20of%20Northern%20Virginia.mht?dl=0)

IMPORTANT, Dropbox will not allow the preview of this particular file extension, however, it will allow you to download the file to your computer, where your computer will tell you the download is complete. You can either save it or just go ahead and open it. PLEASE allow it some time to do this, once it opens, you will be prompted about needing permission to download content, allow that to happen.

As you view the OOB, you will see numbers in highlight over the companies that are per the pages here. Mousing over those highlighted numbers will provide you with the creator of the company and the date the creator formed his post.

Some of you have deleted and reformed, or moved to whatever, so please if you have created a company and see your name in an errant location please PM me for corrections.

Respectfully
Powell

Been a while since I did any updating on this.

Something you should know as you examine this:

I used the company tool to acquire the number of members per unit, these numbers may have or may not have changed since I started this, so if the numbers appear incorrect I apologize for the differences between the time of creating the document and converting it for display here.


I was curious with the numbers of players and where they chose to associate themselves. I also hope that displaying this will give the community a sense of the enormity of players and historical units available.


I'm testing a new document sharing site, please let me know via PM whether you can view / download the document or not.


Thanks.


Enjoy!

I had no issues viewing. Very interesting. It'd be cool to sort by regiment/division density, if that makes sense.

6th LA now has 100/100 in A & B Co's and has mustered in approximately 30 for C.
