    8th Florida Infantry is one of the oldest active units in history of War of Rights. It has been led by Captain Josef Tišer for the last two years. And ever since, our ranks have been growing and we currently hold two battle-ready companies of battle-hardened veterans as well as young new recruits. Although the ranks of 8th Florida are primarily consisted of volunteers from various countries like United States, France, Finland, Spain, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Britain and Czechia. We still honor the Floridian origin of the company. And we can also pride ourselves as currently being the unit that has the largest unit of the CZ/SK community in the game. We are a semi-hardcore company that focus on being well-trained, organized and disciplined. Like how a true confederate company should be, with immersive gameplay, which we look for it to be "enjoyable authenticity". We also conduct roleplay and skirmishing that isn’t missing on our drill-grounds. Our drill sessions are focused on the historical accurate Hardee's drill manual, which we implement on the battlefield. We also regularly sponsor community events and keep close cooperation with other regiments that we fight with. We are also one of the founder members of the United European Community, that is recognized by Campfire Games, the developer of War of Rights. We are the best of the best from the sunshine state! “Any fate but submission!”

    A large number of our new players are of Czech and Slovak origin, and they have been joining us at the beginning of 2019. And because our long-term goal is to create a fully operating CZ/SK company, we are pleased to announce that we formed a Company C. This company is a company that is exclusively filled with our CZ / SK volunteers. And together with Company A, the two companies form the 8th Florida Infantry/ The 1st "Sunshine" Battalion. Company C is already established on the Company Tool.





    8. pěší battalion je jednou z nejstarších aktivních jednotek War of Rights. Poslední dva roky pod vedením kapitána Josefa Tišera. Od té doby naše řady rostly a v současné době máme dvě bojeschopné roty zocelených veteránů i mladých nových rekrutů. Ačkoliv se v řadách 8. pěší primárně skládají dobrovolníci z různých zemí jako Francie, Finsko, Španělsko, Švédsko, Belgie, Německo, Británie, Česko a Spojené státy, stále ctíme floridský původ regimentu. Můžeme se také pochlubit tím, že jsme v současné době jednotkou, která má ve hře největší jednotku komunity CZ / SK. Jsme semi-hardcore jednotka, která se zaměřuje na to, aby byla dobře vycvičená, organizovaná a disciplinovaná, přesně jak by měla být skutečná jednotka konfederace. S hlubokým gameplayem se zaměřujeme na"příjemnou autentičnost". Také vedeme roleplay a skirmishing, které nám nechybí na našich cvicištích. Naše cvičení se zaměřují na historicky přesný Hardeeho Drill Manual, který realizujeme na bojišti. Pravidelně sponzorujeme komunitní akce a udržujeme úzkou spolupráci s dalšími jednotkami, se kterými bojujeme. Jsme také jedním ze zakládajících členů United European Community, spolku který je uznáván samotnými Campfire Games, vývojáři War of Rights. Jsme nejlepší ze nejlepšího na slunci! "Jakýkoli osud, ale odevzdání!"

    Velký počet nových hráčů českého a slovenského původu se k nám připojilo začátkem roku 2019. A protože naším dlouhodobým cílem je vytvořit plně fungující CZ / SK rotu, s potěšením oznamujeme, že jsme založili Company C. Tato rota je výhradně pro naše CZ/SK dobrovolníky. A společně s rotou A tvoří 8. pěší floridský battalion.













    8th Infantry Regiment completed its organization at Lake City, Florida, during the summer of 1862, under Colonel Richard F. Floyd. Its members were raised in the counties of Walton, Washington, Jackson, Santa Rosa, Escambia, Leon, and Gadsden. Transferred with Pryor’s Brigade to Anderson’s Division of the First Corps, Army of Northern Virginia under Lt. Gen. James Longstreet. Nearly one half of all Floridians who served beyond the border never returned to their home state, or returned maimed.

    Shortly after the organization of the Regiment it was ordered to Virginia, they fought in the Second Battle of Manassas, August 30, 1862, where, as General Pryor reported:" The 5th and 8th Florida Regiments, though never under fire before, exhibited the cool and collected courage of veterans." Crossing the Potomac early in September, the Brigade participated in the investment and capture of the Federal forces at Harper's Ferry, thence they hurried to the field of Sharpsburg, September 17, there the regiment was under the temporary command of Lt. Colonel George A. Coppens of the 1st Louisiana Zouave Battalion because of the absence and sickness of Col. Richard B. Floyd. The service under Lt. Colonel Coppens is described by the report of one of the officers: "Col. Coppen was killed almost immediately after getting fire, in the cornfield below the stone barn near bloody lane! Capt. Richard A. Waller then assumed command as senior Capt. and was also killed with the colors of the regiment draped over his shoulders, almost immediately afterward, the flagstaff having been shot in two, & the color bearer and color guard beig all either killed or wounded". Captain David Lang of Company C was later promoted to Colonel effective September 17 after Colonel Floyd resigned due to ill health.

    On the return of the army to Virginia, the 8th Regiment was brigaded with the other Florida regiments under command of E. A. Perry. The Brigade remained in R. H. Anderson's division, in Longstreet's corps. Under Lang's command the regiment lost 7 enlisted men killed, 37 wounded, and 44 missing at Fredericksburg, when the regiment went to the support of the two Mississippi Regiments under Barksdale, at the river where the Federals were endeavoring to lay their bridges. In General McClellan's report he says: "It (the 8th) acted gallantly and did good service." .Colonel David Lang and his Major Thomas E. Clarke were badly wounded in the head. Captain William Baya of Company D was later promoted to lieutenant colonel.

    Under Col. Lang's command the Florida Brigade fought at Gettysburg in July 1863. They were attached to Pickett's Division, and took part in the famous attack on the Union center on the 3rd day. The regiment brought 176 men to the field. Lieutenant Colonel Baya commanded the regiment while Colonel Lang was temporarily in command of the brigade. The Eighth Florida lost 18 men killed, 83 enlisted men wounded and 11 men missing. And the regimental colors were captured by Sergeant Thomas Horan of the 72nd New York infantry Regiment. In the last year of war the Florida Brigade fought at Cold Harbor in June 1864 and Petersburg during the winter. The brigade retreated with the Army of Northern Virginia and surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse on April 9, 1865. By the time of surrender, the regiments were the size of modern-day platoons or companies. The 2nd, 5th, and 8th surrendered 68, 53, and 32 men respectively. The 9th, 10th, and 11th surrendered 124, 162, and 23. Most of the 11th had been cut off in the army’s retreat and had previously surrendered.
