    Burnside's IX Corps





    The 9th Corps is an in-game Union organization designed to help coordinate Union units in the field. The 9th Corps does NA and EU events. Only historical 9th Corps regiments listed below are allowed to join this organization, and links to our member's forum pages are under the order of battle. Our event schedule is listed below. If you want to join the Corps go to IXCorps.org!




    With the 9th Corps now apart of the Army of the Potomac, General George McClellan placed General Ambrose Burnside in charge of the Right wing of the Army of the Potomac which consisted of the 1st Corps under General Joseph Hooker, and his own 9th Corps now under the command of General Jesse Reno. The Kanawha Division under General Jacob Cox would be attached for the campaign. The 9th Corps would fight in the Battle of South Mountain in the Fox's Gap and General Reno would be killed in action leaving General Cox in charge of the 9th Corps for the remainder of the Maryland Campaign. During Antietam the 1st and 9th Corps would happen to be on opposite sides of the Battlefield which left Burnside back in charge of the 9th Corps. By 10am the 9th Corps to the far south of the field would attack the bridge later dubbed "Burnside's Bridge" as well as cross over Snaverly Ford. After securing both river crossings the 9th Corps would advance toward the Harpers Ferry Road nearly cutting the Confederate Army's retreat path. However, a Confederate counter attack would drive the 9th Corps back to the Antietam creek bringing an end to the Battle of Antietam. The entire 9th Corps would be on reserve during the Battle of Shepherdstown.
