Ok so basically a RP thread based on the Civil War! The RP starts in 1861 and will progress at a decent rate. Ok so make a character sheet:

Army:Union or Confederate)
Group:Infantry, cavalry,Artillery, Medical)

Name: Samuel J. McCord
Army: Union
Group: Cavalry
Rank: First Sergeant
Homestate: Wisconsin.

It was mid april, 1861, a few days after Fort Sumter was bombarded in Mobile Harbor, First Sergeant Samuel J. McCord was sitting outside the Company Tent of "B" Company, 15th Wisconsin Cavalry, in Falls Church, Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C. Soon, the Union army would collide with the Army of Northern Virginia somewhere in Northern Virginia.

Name: Alan Parker
Army: Confederate
Group: Cavalry
Rank: 2nd Lieutenant
Homestate: Boston

"Bloody hell, we're getting our arses kicked out here!" "Where the hells our artillery?" "Ah, my leg!" The constant screams and shouts from the men were nearly enough to make Alan run away with his horse, but he stayed because of his duty. "MEN! Group up! We're making a charge to break out of here!" As his men prepared themselves artillery fire started up higher on the hill. Alan stared down at the Union soldiers who were grouped together, obviously not expecting a charge. 'Perfectly stupid these Union soldiers are' Alan thought to himself. As his men were waiting for the orders, Alan re-considered committing himself and his men to this action. All the thoughts of re-consideration disappeared when he yelled "Charge" and forced his horse down the hill. Alan nearly laughed at the faces of the Union soldiers cowering while Alan and his men charged by them. Alans glee was short lived, when his horse was struck by a bullet in the head. Alan was sent over the horses head onto the ground. He realised he had broken a few bones in his arm and possibly sprained his ankle, but Alan grabbed his revolver and started firing to give his men some cover to escape with.

As Alan regained focus, he realised he was stuck undearneath a ruined artillery cannon. The weight of the cannon was forcing air out of Alans lungs. The sounds of battle were distant to Alan as he struggled underneath the cannon. Suddenly the weight was removed and the sounds of battle soon returned to Alan. He was suddenly pulled up by Private Quigley one of his younger cavalrymen.

"Keep moving" Alan barked at his men, as they trundled down the hill. Firing and reloading were the constant parts of the battle. As Alan slipped and slid part way down the hill. A Union soldier tried to skewer Alan with a sword. The sword went through Alans shoulder and the pain of the wound was agonizing. As the soldier lifted the sword to try another attempt, Alan felt as if his life was about to end there and then, but God hadn't chose Alan to die at that time, because the same soldier who had saved him from underneath the cannon thrust a sword through the mans chest. I owe that man my life now.

He was in the front of the lines and he was fireing like a madman he had overheated two rifles. He only had his sword left they were being pushed back the captain calls charge!!! All the men are now screaming at the confedarte soliders there captain had called a retreat some old soliders were still fighting for the army who had just retreated John saw his chance one was reloading John ran up to him the old man. Was reaching for his pistol. John had sliced his chest alright men lets keep moveing to town calls the captain.
