The Constitution Square Massacre was an early engagement of the Siddarmark Civil War. It was the first appearance of Aivah Pahrsahn and the Charisian irregulars she had secretly trained and equipped.

PreludeEdit

The Sword of Schueler had hoped to caputure the Lord Protector's Palace quickly, along with the Lord Protector in hopes of seizing the capital, and thus swing the opening phase of the Siddarmark Civil War in their favour. Defending the Palace was a sole regiment of pikemen, who were underarmed and outnumbered by the Sword of Schueler and the mob of Temple Loyalists it was leading. (HFAF)

Order of BattleEdit

DefendersEdit

Siddarmarkian ArmyEdit

  • 1 Remigment of Pikemen

Charisian IrregularsEdit

  • Armed with flint lock weapons

Attackers Edit

Sword of Schueler & Temple LoyalistsEdit

  • 5,000 to 6,000 armed with improvised weapons

Course of BattleEdit

The actual battle itself was quite short, before the Pikemen could be overrun, Aivah Pahrsahn and her irregulars arrived, and with the new flintlocks. Although the irregulars were vastly outnumbered, their steel discipline and sudden arrival were more than enough to break the resolve of the angry mob they faced. After several volleys, and a well placed baying howl often used by the Imperial Charisian Marines, the mob broke, with heavy casualties, leaving Constitution Square and the Palace, as well as the city itself in the hands of Siddarmark government. (HFAF)

AftermathEdit

With such casualties, the Temple Loyalists, and their leading Sword of Schueler commanders were unable to take the city, nor capture the Lord Protector. With Aivah Pahrsahn and her irregulars, order was restored to the city. (HFAF)
