Military Governor's Barracks

These are versatile infantry of the line, able to dispatch enemies with musket or bayonet.

Line infantry are responsible for holding the line in battle, forming the backbone of the army while specialist troops harass and chip away at the enemy. Once the enemy is worn down, the regiment can rush them with a finishing bayonet charge. Their close formation gives them strength when attacking, but leaves them vulnerable to artillery and harassing skirmishers. If under threat from cavalry they can form a defensive square.

Historically, the Royal Deux-Ponts take their name from the Duke of Deux-Pont who raised the regiment on his German estates. The regiment served throughout the Seven Years War and remained active after the war, while many long-established French units were disbanded. It went on to serve as part of the French expeditionary force that arrived in America in 1780 under Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau.
