About the 12e
The 12ème Régiment d'Infanterie de Ligne is an active, fun, large, North American regiment that has regular events for members of our community to enjoy. The 12e fields players mainly from the United States but men from Canada, Portugal, UK, Brazil, Mexico, Australia have also fielded our ranks. Although the 12e will get serious when needed, we still joke around and try to make the game fun for everyone! We do not use PTS (Permission to Speak) because as long as people don’t talk over officers there isn’t really a problem. Before you decide to join the 12e, remember that we are a regiment that is about community. We play other games rather than Napoleonic Wars and create a friendly environment within our teamspeak. In order to succeed in the 12e a member must show his dedication and skill through melee and leadership but also be a helpful member to our community.
In all, we are a community that has a nicely established place in the community and we invite any who are interested to come to our events! Read below for more details about the 12e

A 12e Shako

It was created in 1800, and served until the literal last true fight of the French empire(waterloo) It stayed with Napoleon till the end. It's most important battles were some along the lines of. Austerlitz, Eylau, Waterloo and Wagram, which were all put onto its [url=http://frederic.berjaud.free.fr/Articles_de_Didier_Davin/012edeligne/12e_de_ligne.htm]eagle.
| Since we had so much history, only a few certain inserts were added into, as too not clutter it up too much.|
The eve of the battle, Napoleon sent an aide to Davout to ask him to move forward on Appolda to fall on the rear of the enemy he believes whole front of him. Davout, the 3rd Corps has about 26000 men 83% infantry, received this order in the night and takes its provisions for the next day. Gudin's division is placed at the head of the 3rd Corps with the 12th Line. The day begins at 6:30 am with the start of the 3rd Division who crossed the bridge Koesen. Then blinded by a thick fog and the default Cavalry Regiment which should enlighten, goes on village Hassenhausen. Leaving the latter, it collides with the enemy troops, unaware that she has to face the bulk of the Prussian Army. The 12th, with all Gudin Division, castles in the village and when the fog lifts, Gudin discovers the threat posed by the enemy's cavalry division and form a square. The tray is the key Hassenhausen ground point and Gudin Division will support only for about two hours a shock Infantry Division and 25 Squadrons Blücher. Soon comes the Friant Division unfolding on the right Gudin. It then takes forces to oppose led Brunswick to outflank his left to cut the line of retreat eastward effort. The infantry of the 12th and 21st Line are at the center of the device and must contain the efforts of an enemy almost twice in number.
About 11 hours, so they bend under the numbers, they are backed by the commitment of the Division Morand, who reports for a run and deploys left. Prince William then launches squads reserve, which abut the square battalions of the 13th Light and 17th, 51st and 61th Line. Decimated and exhausted by their incessant but unsuccessful assaults, the Prussians fell back, despite the personal commitment of leaders in their General to bring online the failed drives. Brunswick itself is killed while charging with a Battalion of Grenadiers. Although still outnumbered, King of Prussia hesitate to resume the offensive, and ordered a retreat, covered by a strong reserve untouched trying to oppose the prosecution conducted with energy Davout on any line front.
Grouchy must fight a battle while wearing the reserve will play ground breaking. The 12e, once again, is severely tested. At 10 am, he crossed the bridge Farciennes then goes on the left of Fleurus where he leads an attack on St. Amand. After wiping the shots of the enemy's sharpshooters, he seizes the village, supported by the efforts of the 56e and 96e Line. It stands out on this occasion, thanks to the action of one of his sergeants, Brossière who seizes a piece of large caliber. About six o'clock Blücher launches attack against the village of St Amand, who fiercely contested, remains in the hands of the French. Napoleon then sends the reservation to the assault. The enemy was repulsed and the victory gained. However, it is not decisive because Ney, chilly before the English, reminded him Erlon's Corps, contrary to the orders of the Emperor. The retreat of the Prussians is not cut as planned.
