Sabertooth - Chapter 19
Chapter 19: Sabretooth
After several long days of trekking, Victor and 14th Militia arrived at their destination: Henry’s Family Hill.
They were assigned to the position of Major William Barry, commander of the Federal Army artillery of the Henry Family Hill, and were responsible for guarding the Federal Army artillery stationed here.
Their opponent is the 33rd Regiment of the Virginia Army on the left wing of the 1st Brigade of Virginia of the Southern Army Thomas Jackson.
Then the swine teammate syndrome of the Northern Army committed again, and the artillery commander Major Barry saw the uniform worn by the enemy 33rd regiment was a dark blue jacket and trousers, and thought that it was a friendly army, and ordered to stop firing.
As a result, the 33rd Regiment broke through the outer defense of the artillery position without any effort, and took away the artillery belonging to the EFF.
When Majer Barry realize that he had made a big mistake, he request the support of the 14th Regiment, while the Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment, who had just arrived at the Henry Family Hill, was fighting with Colonel Stuart’s cavalry.
Earlier, the Southern Cavalry, led by Colonel Stuart, had defeated the EFF Minnesota First Regiment. If he defeated the Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment again, he could completely defeat the EFF wings.
Therefore, after receiving the request for assistance from Major Barry, Alfred Wood can only ask Victor to lead his company to support first, and said: The 14th Regiment of Brooklyn will arrive soon, we will not abandon any brother.
Victor, who was in danger, put on his blue military cap and led the 100 people under him to leave Manassas Sugan Road.
When he came to the Henry Family Hill artillery position, he found that his artillery was being run over the mountains like the 33rd regiment of the southern army.
The artillery that originally belonged to the EFF has fallen into the hands of the 33rd Regiment of the Southern Army. They are turning the muzzle in preparation for firing towards the EFF.
Upon seeing this, Victor had to rush up the hillside with 100 men, and began to slam the artillery position that had fallen into the enemy.
Victor charged as always in the forefront, and the flag bearer behind him held up the flying stars and stripes, indicating the direction of the charge.
The 33rd regiment that was raided was caught off guard. Victor rushed into the artillery position with his bayonet.
All the Southern Army soldiers, who were blocked in front of him, were like scarecrows during training. They were picked up and killed, or their heads were smashed by gun butts.
In such a short battle, Victor’s beast instinct and superhuman reaction ability can help him easily avoid the enemy’s attack.
Under his leadership, M Company quickly tore the defense of the 33rd Regiment and recaptured two cannons. The other artillery was blown up, when the 33rd regiment retreated.
This is the defect of insufficient manpower. Although Victor defeated the morale of the enemy, his manpower was not enough to recapture and control all the artillery.
During this period, he also received a lot of cold guns, and then made many Southern Army shooters have doubts about his marksmanship. Obviously, he should have hit the gun, and it was still two shots. Shouldn’t it be double happiness? Why does it feel like it is off target? Why is this?
Although Victor temporarily defeated the 33rd Regiment of the Southern Army with the advantage of the raid, but he simply did not have enough troops to defend such a large artillery position.
He had to let his men gather the broken northern artillery, set up the two recaptured artillery, and opened fire on the 33rd regiment of the southern army that had launched a counterattack.
And he, himself, took the boys of the M company to build a line of defense at the forefront of the artillery position and stayed there. The disadvantage of numbers quickly became apparent.
The 33rd Regiment rushed into Victor’s defensive position without much effort, and launched a white-blade battle with them. At this critical moment, the Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment led by Colonel Alfred arrived.
They have defeated the southern cavalry led by Colonel Stuart. While leaving Manassas Sugan Road came to support their ‘Gray Brother Company: Victor’s M Company.
During the days of the march, these young men in red wool trousers gained the love of the veterans from the 5th Cavalry Regiment, and the veterans of the 5th Cavalry Regiment also used their past records and stories to get this group from New York. State Volunteers are recognized.
This time, the number of undaunted impacts was far greater than that of their own enemy, and the success of retrieving their own artillery positions completely subdued this group of young guys.
They also successfully inspired their morale, and the 33rd Regiment of the Southern Army was defeated from the front by the 14th Militia Regiment from Brooklyn.
During the flight, he was shot and shelled by the 14th Militia Regiment in Brooklyn, causing heavy casualties. It even started to attack the position of the friendly Virginia Second Regiment.
Victor took his boys and chased the ass of the 33rd Regiment, and rushed into the position of the 2nd Regiment of the Virginia Army of the Southern Army.
Whether it was an officer or a soldier, who stood in front of him, they all fell down with a bayonet, and then added a knife to send to see God, but he was almost unscathed.
“God, he is like a Sabretooth! It’s rampant in the enemy’s position.”
Colonel Alfred, the commander of the 14th Militia Regiment in Brooklyn, uttered such words for Victor’s bravery.
The 2nd Virginia regiment was quickly torn apart by Victor’s vanguard company, and then fell into defeat.
This has almost become a law. In the direction of Victor’s impact, there will be a large number of enemy casualties, and then a gap will be formed, which will eventually lead to defeat.
When he attacked these defense lines composed of ordinary soldiers, it was like a tiger entering the flock, with only one-sided slaughter and almost no threats.
And through these fights, he is constantly improving his fighting skills. Although he is unilaterally crushed, he still has some role in practicing his hands.
For example, how to maximize the killing efficiency, as well as attacking and grasping human weaknesses can be improved through practice. After all, the tyrant will be killed as if it were cut off, right?
And Victor’s first and most famous nickname: Sabretooth was born on the battlefield of the Civil War.
With the efforts of Victor and the 14th Militia Regiment in Brooklyn, the left side of the Confederate Army’s front line began to faintly show signs of collapse.
At this time, General Borrigad woke up from the dream that he could defeat the right wing of the Northern Army and began to order the whole army, including the reserve team, to all go to support the left wing.
In fact, it is true that it is not wrong to say that Borrigad and McDowell are rookies, after all, they are old classmates at West Point Military Academy.
Even if the underpants sold by McDowell are gone, even if Borrigad is completely informed of the enemy’s strategy, he is almost defeated and can only say that he is indeed good.
But McDowell, an old classmate, was more versatile than him. First, after the Brooklyn 14th Militia continued to break through the two lines of defense on the left of the Southern Army, they ordered two hours of repairs.
And he said: “After the battle, the war will be over!” In this way, he was doomed to the next tragedy.
First, Thomas Jackson finally arrived. He led his troops to take the gap of the Northern Army’s attack and quickly entered the left line to consolidate the position.
The other Southern Army also took advantage of this opportunity to get a chance to breathe and repair. When the EFF launched another offensive, they also recovered from exhaustion.
In the melee, the armies of the two sides were in chaos, and it was impossible to tell, who was the friend or the enemy. They often rushed to find that they were following the enemy, and they became two or five…
However, the Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment has no such troubles. Their unique red wool pants make them the most prominent presence on the battlefield.
Equally conspicuous with their outfits is their constant charge, fierce tactics that are not afraid of death. Thomas Jackson’s men suffered heavy losses in the battle with the Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment.
He called these scarlet hats and trousers, blue jackets with lots of golden buttons, and white leggings militiamen the red-legged devil.
Whenever the Brooklyn 14th Militia charged, they shouted towards his men: “Stay, boys! The red-legged devil is here again!”
At this time, the officer rushing to the forefront of the red-legged devil is a federal captain wearing blue trousers: Victor Creed.
Among the more than 100 people under his command, 11 were killed in battle, 46 were injured, and more than 10 were captured and missing. He almost completely lost his fighting power, so he had to mix into the charge team of other companies to charge together.
Colonel Alfred adopted an acquiescence to Victor’s behavior of dropping his subordinates and running to charge.
On the one hand, the M company had indeed lost its fighting power, so he asked Victor’s adjutant to lead them back to the rear for repair.
Victor, who was supposed to go together, offered to stay, and the reason given by Alfred could not be refused: as long as he was there, the troops could tear a hole anywhere in the enemy’s defense.
He and M Company have become the sharpest knives of the 14th Militia Regiment in Brooklyn, and he, himself, is the sharpest blade of this knife.
As long as he rushed into the enemy’s position, it was like where he knocked into the most determined iron nail, which opened an entrance for the subsequent friendly army to rush into the position.
But this time, the Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment met an opponent: from the 1st Battalion of Louisiana (Louisiana Tiger).
If the Brooklyn 14th Militia Regiment is the best militia of the Northern Army, then the 1st Battalion of Louisiana (Louisiana Tiger) is the best volunteer army of the Southern Army.
The collision between the two best troops and the battle between Sabretooth and the Tiger Group are on the verge.
