Gettysburg Daily and the 2nd United States Sharpshooters

Unbeknownst to me, Gettysburg Daily has an excellent 5-part series on the 2nd United States Sharpshooters.  this is kind of a big deal since I think they are generally ignored by a lot of people who visit the park and their monuments are a little obscure–and yet at the same time, if not for their efforts in stalling the Confederate advance on the Union flank near Big Round Top, the Confederates may have won the battle and possible won the war.

Here are the individual posts (5 in total, as I said); be sure to watch the videos!

Also this little nugget of goodness from the Gettysburg Daily as well; featured here is the Company I hope will accept me in their ranks–Company C, 2nd USSS:

Give them a look and check out the videos.  Very informative and extremely useful videos.
