2nd Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry [Union Army]
« on: November 18, 2012, 09:57:31 PM »






The 2nd Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry is a gaming community for the
Mount and Blade Warband modification "North&South"
and soon to be "Battle Cry of Freedom". This regiment sets out to accuratly represent
the original 2nd Wisconin through a series of training events and battle reenactments.

Courage, Honor and Discipline are the 3 Ideals and standards set by the 1st brigade.
The reason for that being is because skillfull shooting and
good melee skills is NOT enough to make a soldier. That requires discipline.
And it is because of our level of discpline that we have been able to endure so long
as a regiment where others have fallen. The same ideals are what has won us many battles.

History
The 2nd Regiment Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry was an infantry regiment that served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. Immediately following President Abraham Lincoln’s proclamation to put down the rebellion on April 15th, 1861, the Governor of Wisconsin, Alexander W. Randall sent a call of arms to all of the citizens of Wisconsin.


The 2nd Wisconsin was primarily raised from citizens of Madison, Racine, Milwaukee, Oshkosh, and La Crosse, and mustered enough men to form two regiments. The 2nd Wisconsin was federally instituted on June 11, 1861, as a three-year regiment, under the appointed command of S. Park Coon, a native of New York and Wisconsin’s attorney general. Henry W. Peck, a Class of 1851 West Point Graduate from Ohio, was appointed as the Lieutenant Colonel. The 2nd Wisconsin saw their first action at the First Battle of Bull Run in July of 1861. After the Battle, both Colonel Coon and Lt. Colonel Peck resigned their positions, and Colonel Edgar O’Connor, Lt. Colonel Lucius Fairchild, and Major Thomas S. Allen were appointed, and under their leadership, the 2nd Wisconsin became a naturally feared fighting force to the Confederates. In Late July of 1862, Colonel O’Connor was killed in action, and Lt. Colonel Fairchild was promoted to Colonel and took his place. In 1862, during the Northern Virginia Campaign, the 2nd Wisconsin constantly went up against Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson’s fierce Confederates, and fought against them in the Second Battle of Bull Run. In the Battle of Groveton (the first day of battle during the Second Battle of Bull Run), the veteran 2nd Wisconsin was called up to eradicate the Confederate Artillery, and advanced against them quietly and managed to push against them. They fought in many major battles in 1862, such as Antietam and Fredericksburg, and in 1863 they fought at Chancellorsville, where the famed General “Stonewall” Jackson was killed. But the finest hour of the 2nd Wisconsin came in the Battle of Gettysburg, where under the command of Colonel Lucius Fairchild, held McPherson’s Ridge against invading confederate troops.
They bravely fought and lost over three quarters of their men, and Colonel Fairchild lost his arm from a confederate bullet. At the end of the day, with all of the commanding officers either wounded or killed, Captain George H. Otis took command of the mere 69 men that were left in the 2nd Wisconsin, to fight on at Culp’s Hill. The first Confederate General to be captured during the war, General James Archer, was captured by Private Patrick Maloney of Company G during this battle. Their bravery at Gettysburg made a name for them, and their fame lives on today.
