The mount&blade: secession team, in cooperation with the north and south team of Napoleon Total War, is honoured to announce the development of:


North & South - First Manassas
The American Civil War

a modification for the glorious M&B Warband: Napoleonic Wars


It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it.
Robert E. Lee - Confederate General 1862




This mod will be set 50 years after the Napoleonic Wars. The united states are divided in two factions!

The Union and the Confederate States of America. Both sides fight in the biggest war on the american continent: The American Civil War 1861-1865

The first version of this modification will feature the Battle of Manassas, which was the first big battle of the Civil War.
On July 21st, 1861 both armies clashed near Manassas junction and the river bull run. It should be the first and last battle of the war.


SPECIAL THANKS AND CREDITS

I would like to thank the secession team and its contributors for their cooperation, naming here Azrooh, Austro and Rigadoon for some of their fancy civil war stuff and support.
Beside that, credits go to berserkergang and Kopcap! Special credit goes to total war modder Primergy and his "North and South" mod for NTW.
A great cheer to the Second Carolina String Band and California State Fife and Drum Corps for their music contribution to turn the game into a deeper civil war atmosphere.​

Factions

• Fight as one of the two combatants - the Union or the Confederacy!
• Many differences between factions while remaining balanced!

Uniforms

• At the battle of Manassas, uniforms in the army weren't regular at all. Confederates troops in blue, New York regiments in grey. It was a very colorfull and mixed battle!
• A large amount of high-quality, historically accurate uniforms for each side!
• Many uniforms of famous regiments and brigades! Fight with the maltese cross of the 20th Maine on your kepi, in the uniform of the iron brigade, and many more!

Standards

• A large amount of high-quality, historically accurate uniforms for each side!
• A large variety of in-game banners for each side!

Weaponry

• A wide array of historically accurate weapons!
• Fight with smoothbore muskets, rifled muskets, shotguns, breechloaders, revolvers, and repeating rifles!
• There's a good variety of swords to use as well!

Also

Well, my Blue and the Grey is for Empire: Total War (which got a new version in 1 week btw) and made a cooperation with secession for warband.
The Napoleon:TW mod "North & South" isnt released yet, so you cant "loved" that mod :grin:

There is no release date yet, cause we are waiting for the ability to start modding for NW. We need access to some things :wink:

All of the SA guys who play this will be watching this one too. We quite liked Secession (Oh lord the Victorian American jokes so many).

Good luck, ACW is definetly an interesting era. I just hope it won't go the Secession route, with realism kinda destroying the gameplay. Otherwise, looks good so far!

Yeah, With the Union regiment admins banning the confederate regiment admins, and all the union admins nerfing everything for the Confederate team, and the regiments from each side making arguments and banning each other.. Deo and me should remember. (Only a select few know why I remember)

This post is senseless, eh? This here is another mod and has nothing to do with secession, expect the setting :wink:
And I think the story you mentioned is a very early one.. like there were much confusion in the begining of the war..  :roll: :wink:
