The Fifth Regulars in War of Rights

Mission Statement

The Fifth Regulars is an experienced regiment formed by veterans of the community with years of experience behind them. The Fifth prides itself on being heavily dedicated to maintaining historical authenticity through the use of the period-correct "Cavalry Tactics" manual written by J. R. Poinsett for drill and battlefield tactics where our focus lies in dismounted cavalry fighting and skirmishing. Our company structure models itself after how a historical cavalry company would have been formed with a certain number of Sergeants, Corporals, and lieutenants all with their respective duties and positions within formations. This organization while small promotes greater quality of leadership within the ranks and allows for a fun, and competitive community.

We take pride in our ability to work as a cohesive unit and value the time and effort required to be proficient with the period drill. We value the thoughts and ideas of all members of our company and, standards of courtesy and professionalism are required. By joining the Fifth Regulars you are guaranteed to partake in historically authentic drills and privately organized competitive events, all the while maintaining an enjoyable gaming experience.

Founding

The regiment was founded on November 9th, 2020 by Captain Johnson, a longtime member of the WoR community starting out at the very beginning on Kickstarter and during the technical alpha in 2016. The Fifth Regulars was created due to a lack of cavalry representation within the community and with a desire to teach players the real drill and tactics employed by the horse soldiers during the war.
