The Alien First and Only Union Infantry Regiment was a Tylan infantry regiment in the Union Army during the American Civil War. The regiment played a minor role in Sherman's March to the Sea, before its existence was classified by the American government after the war.

Conception

After the Tylan ship TVK Kjorskevam crash-landed on Earth in 1860, its crew was forced to adapt to Earth's climate and biosphere. They formed a small farming community near what would later become Bozeman, Montana, before war broke out.

Upon Lincoln's call to raise an army following the attack on Fort Sumter, the Tylans made themselves and the technology from what remained of their ship known to the Union President. They formed the Alien First and Only, with the name "First and Only" chosen as a reminder that they were the only sapient non-human lifeforms on Earth at the time.

Service

The First and Only was organized in a secret location, and mustered for a five-year enlistment beginning August 16, 1861 under the command of Colonel Thaddius Riker.

Their most notable battle was the Battle of Pine Mountain, Georgia, where Thaddius Riker was wounded and carried away from combat by a strange man, calling himself Quinn.

Classification

The existence of the regiment was disbanded and classified after the war, as Andrew Johnson didn't want anyone to know about the existence of life beyond Earth. The ship's technology was stored what would later be called Roswell, New Mexico. The Tylan Theocracy would later try to take back the remains in mid-1947, but their attempt would fail due to an unforseen engine failure.

Mus Tulasras tan mus vkaffat

The First and Only had their own version of the Battle Hymn of the Republic:

Tylan Translated

We are Tylans and we fight, for the freedom of the Union,
Firm in our belief in unity, thus we are the fifty warriors,
Yankee-Doodle on our lips, justice is the reward,

For the flag of the Union!

Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
For the flag of the Union!

With Riker, up with freedom, up with our flag,
We march to the South, we are the death of tyrannies,
When the enemy comes to us, with great malice,

For the flag of the Union!

Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
For the flag of the Union!

We have fought against princes, and Fulkreykski tyranny,
We now fight against enemies, who broke the country in two,
The rebels make war against freedom, thus our duty is to stop them!

For the flag of the Union!

Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
For the flag of the Union!

See the long blue row, hear of the sounding horns,
From here, from there, we march to the South,
Every human knows, the rebels will not win!

For the flag of the Union!

Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
For the flag of the Union!

Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
Up with Lincoln and Freedom!
For the flag of the Union!
