The 2nd New York are a regiment of line infantry in Empire: Total War.

DescriptionEdit

These musket-armed troops use massed volleys to break an enemy, relying on discipline to withstand any counter-fire.

Marching or line regiments make up the majority of units in European-pattern armies. They are so-called because they form the line of battle, not because they deploy in lines. They can also form square, a particularly effective tactic against cavalry charges, although this leaves the unit incredibly vulnerable to artillery fire and skirmishers. This weakness aside, the versatility of a line regiment makes them a valuable addition to any force.

The 2nd New York regiment was raised in 1775 and placed under the command of Colonel Phillip Van Cortlandt. The Van Cortlandt family history was already impressive: Phillip's great-grandfather was the first American-born Mayor of New York and the family name was used for various place names across America. Colonel Van Cortlandt was promoted to Brigadier General following acts of valour at the Siege of Yorktown. He lived out his remaining years as a politician, eventually dying at the age of 81.
