7th Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment - Company A



About Us
We're a brand new mil-sim company, focusing on historical accuracy where possible. We're open and friendly to anyone and everyone, so long as people can abide by the Company rules and the Chain of Command. We try to have Company events and/or training at least once a week on a rotating schedule on evenings between 7PM-9PM, Eastern Standard Time (see "Event Schedule" for more information). As we're new we have numerous vacancies within the Company and are seeking to immediately fill these positions. If you think you have what it takes, feel free to join the Discord and/or send a DM via Discord/Steam to the Company Commander.

The 7th Maine was organized at Augusta, Maine, and mustered into Federal service for a three-year enlistment on August 21, 1861.

During the autumn, the regiment was involved in the Bristoe Campaign from October 9–22 and the Battle of Rappahannock Station on November 7. It then participated in the Mine Run Campaign from November 26-December 2.

After spending the winter stationary in its camp in Virginia, the 7th was part of Ulysses S. Grant's Overland Campaign from the Rapidan River to the James River between May 3-June 15, 1864. it fought in the Battle of the Wilderness May 5–7; Spotsylvania May 8–12 (including attacking the "Bloody Angle" on May 12).

Sheridan's Shenandoah Valley Campaign from August 7–21.

The regiment was mustered out at Charlestown, Virginia, on August 21, 1864. The veterans whose enlistments had not yet expired and the recent recruits were transferred to the 1st Maine Veteran Infantry. Those men whose term was over returned home to Maine via train.
