    A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE REGIMENT























    5th Infantry Regiment completed its organization at New Orleans, Louisiana, in May, 1861 with men from New Orleans and the parishes of St. Bernard, Bienville, De Soto, Lafourche, and Ouachita. Ordered to Virginia and assigned to the Department of the Peninsula, the unit totalled 744 men in April, 1862. During the war it was attached to General McLaws', Semmes', Hays', and York's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia.

    It participated in many conflicts from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor, marched with Early to the Shenandoah Valley, then was involved in the Appomattox operations. The regiment reported 27 casualties at Manassas Junction, 50 at Sharpsburg, 53 at Chancellorsville, and 7 at Second Winchester. It lost more than thirty percent of the 196 engaged at Gettysburg and had 123 captured at Rappahannock Station. Only 1 officer and 18 men surrendered in April, 1865. The field officers were Colonels Henry Forno and Theodore G. Hunt, Lieutenant Colonels William T. Dean and Bruce Menger, and Major Alexander Hart.

    One of the reasons companies was implement is to condense regiments to a more realistic size. A company of 20-25 strength is much more reasonable than 3 companies of 8.

    I strongly advice against it. For now I suggest remaining Co. A as Infantry and seeing how things handle when the game is actually released.

    I hate to say it but as an example glance over at my Roster. I have 0 intentions of going near another Company until the game is released.
