    Post 18th North Carolina Infantry, Co. A "The German Volunteers" [GER]

    ✩18th North Carolina Infantry✩
    Company A "The German Volunteers"




    ✩"Esse quam videri"✩

    (lat.: Be more than it seems)


    ✩Willkommen bei der 18th North Carolina Infantry | Welcome by the 18th North Carolina Infantry✩





    Die Company A. der 18th North Carolina Infantry mit dem Spitznamen "The German Volunteers", hat sich im September 2016 als eine der ersten, wenn nicht sogar als die erste deutschsprachige Company auf Seiten der Konföderation gegründet. Im kurz darauf veröffentlichten Company-Tool gehörten wir ebenfalls mit zu den ersten die ihre Einheit nicht nur gründeten, sondern durch den Beitritt unserer Member auch sichern konnten.

    Viele unserer Mitglieder haben in Spielen wie Mount & Blade Napoleonic Wars oder der Modifikation des selben Spiels "North and South", schon Erfahrungen mit Clans bzw. Regimentern gesammelt und können daher auf eine umfangreiche Geschichte zurückblicken. Die Offiziere und Unteroffiziere werden auch mit der Hilfe dieser Erfahrungen die Company gestalten, um Fehler zu vermeiden und um allen das beste zu ermöglichen - eine freundliche, aktive und tolerante Gemeinschaft auf demokratischer Basis, in der es sich lohnt, sich zu beteiligen und Spaß zu haben.

    Aber auch Genre-fremde haben bei uns Einzug gehalten und bringen frischen Wind und neue Ideen mit, die auf offene Ohren stoßen. Diesen "neuen" Mitspielern helfen wir, in die Thematik und Mechaniken von War of Rights einzusteigen, ohne dabei Angst haben zu müssen auf der Strecke zu bleiben. Dafür sorgen wir mit regelmäßigem Drill, Geduld und Motivation.

    Unsere Truppenklasse ist die Infanterie, die damals sowohl in starren Linienformationen, als auch im "offenen" aufgefächerten Kampf agieren konnte. Auf eben jenen "offenen" Kampf legen wir den Schwerpunkt bei der Ausbildung. Auf historische Genauigkeit legen wir dabei besonderen Wert, solang sie sich mit dem Rahmen eines Spiels vereihnen lässt, und dabei nicht den Unterhaltungswert einschränkt.





    The Company A of the 18th North Carolina Infantry, nicknamed "The German Volunteers" was founded on the 16th of September as one of the first, if not the very first german-speaking unit on the confederate side. Shortly after we were one of the first units wich secured it's name in the new Company Tool due to numerous new members joining us.

    Many of our members already gained experiences with clans and regiments in games such as "Mount & Blade: Napoleonic Wars" and it's civil war modification "North and South" and therefore look back on an extensive history. Our Officers and NCOs will create and lead the company based on these experiences to avoid mistakes and to make possible the best of everything possible - a friendly and active, tolerant and democratic community in wich it is worthwhile to take part and have fun with.

    Off course people who aren't familiar with the genre also found to us and bring fresh wind an new ideas with them, wich meet with open ears. We help hese "new" members to understand enjoy the topic and the mechanics of War of Rights so that no one has to fear to stay on the track. We take care of it with regular drills, patience and motivation.

    Our unit is to be classified as infantry wich fought as a solid line our in open formation back in the days of the american civil war. This open fight is the focus of our training. Historical accuracy is of particular importance to us as much as it is possible in the game and without limiting the fun.














    ✩ History ✩


    The 18th Infantry Regiment, formerly the 8thVolunteers, was organized at Camp Wyatt, near Carolina Beach, North Carolina, in July, 1861. Its members were from Wilmington and the counties of Robeson, New Hanover, Bladen, Columbus, and Richmond. It moved to South Carolina, returned to North Carolina, then in the spring of 1862 proceeded to Virginia. The 18th served in General Branch's and Lane's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. After fighting at Hanover Court House, it participated in various conflicts of the army from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbor. It continued the fight in the trenches of Petersburg south of the James River and ended the war at Appomattox. This unit was organized with 1,100 men, lost fifty-seven percent of the 396 engaged during the Seven Days' Battles, and reported 14 casualties at Cedar Mountain and 12 at Second Manassas. There were 13 killed and 77 wounded at Fredericksburg and 30 killed and 96 wounded at Chancellorsville. Of the 346 in action at Gettysburg, about twenty-five percent were disabled. It surrendered 11 officers and 73 men at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865, including Major Thomas J. Wooten and captains Benjamin F. Rinaldi and John J. Poisson.

    As Jackson and his staff were returning to camp on May 2, they were mistaken for a Union cavalry force by the 18th North Carolina Infantry regiment who shouted, "Halt, who goes there?", but fired before evaluating the reply. Frantic shouts by Jackson's staff identifying the party were replied to by Major John D. Barry (Company I) with the retort, "It's a damned Yankee trick! Fire!" A second volley was fired in response; in all, Jackson was hit by three bullets, two in the left arm and one in the right hand. Several other men in his staff were killed, in addition to many horses. Darkness and confusion prevented Jackson from getting immediate care.





    The company consisted of German immigrants who had settled in New Hanover County. The company of "German Volunteers" can look back on a long tradition. Founded in 1852 as one of three militia companies of the city of Wilmington (at the beginning even more a Gentelman club as a military unit), they trained and exercised until the beginning of the civil war. Right at the beginning of North Carolina's secession they occupied, together with the other units of the militia, the forts "Caswell" and "Johnson" in an amphibious landing action and were thus the first units of this state to become active. On 15th April 1861 the unit was mustered and was now the A. Company of the 8th North Carolina Volunteers. The unit retained this position even after the reorganization of the regiment in November 1861, making it the first company in the new 18th North Carolina.

    • Volunteers müssen in ihren vier Wochen Probezeit mindestens an einem Event pro Woche teilnehmen. Abmeldungen sind zugelassen dürfen aber den Zeitraum der Probezeit nicht über 6-8 Wochen hinauszögern.
    • Privates müssen an zwei Events pro Monat teilnehmen. Abmeldungen sind zugelassen. Ist die Aktivitätsrate nicht aufrecht zu halten so steht ein Gespräch mit einem zuständigen NCO/CO an.

    §1). Behave yourself respectfully to your comrades and members of other companies.

    §2). Disruptions, insults or similar actions that can be summarized under Trolling are to be omitted and will be punished in the case of Repudiation with expulsion from the unit.

    §3). Extremism / racism in any form is prohibited and will immediately result in a discharge.

    §4). In the absence, it is important to inform an NCO or CO, so that events can be better planned.

    §5). Membership in several companies (WoR) is undesirable and will not be tolerated.

    §6). The orders of the officers / NCOs are to be obeyed. If there should be difficulties with a command, it must be executed anyway and can be objected to afterwards.

    §7). There should be some basic activity. This means that participation in a training session / event is requested per weekend (if possible).

    §8). Each member is required to create a historically appropriate identity for their activities in WoR and RP in the Company. The details of each identity may be left to the creator himself, but may, if desired, be based on other characters of the company.

    §9). It is important that each member of the unit is registered in the official company tool, where he creates his WoR identity and joins the company.

    These general rules should make it clear to everyone what views we represent. The rules should also set out what behavior we wish our members to have and explain the principles that belong to a disciplined unit.
