    The 2nd U.S. Sharpshooters followed the direction of Colonel Henry A. Von Post, receiving an assignment to the 1st Army Corps in 1862. By 1863, the men of the 2nd U.S. Sharpshooters marched to Gettysburg as veterans of eight major engagements. Furthermore, they were a tight unit, dedicated to their professionalism and to each other. Their frequent deployment as skirmishers and long-range marksmen, rather than alienating the soldiers from each other, strengthened both individual sharpshooters’ leadership abilities and their collective confidence in their regimental organization. Sergeant Darius Starr of Company F perhaps expressed it best in a letter to a friend written on September 8, 1863. Starr wrote, “We have in this regt a set of men who do not look up to anybody, and in fact most of the boys are fit to take command of a regiment, and they all know they are a more intelligent set of men than the officers of most regiments. Even in battle our boys do pretty much as they please.” Sergeant Starr then quoted his brigade commander, Brigadier General Ward, whom he heard to say, “The 2nd U.S.S.S. is the best marching and the best fighting regt I ever saw, but they are so saucy that no one can do anything with them.”Finally, Starr added a most telling remark: “I had rather be a private in this regiment than an officer in any other in the service.”

    Welcome to our new recruits... Rct. MacTearlach, Rct. Lee, Rct. Tanner, Rct. Hardy, Rct. Jackson and Rct. Kuhl. It's been a great week for the 2nd with these guys who although they don't have experience have stepped right in and contributed.

    I'm new to the game and thought that the regiment sounded both unique and well put together. I have a total of ten hours worth of experience and was wondering if you have a preference on the experience of recruits or do you accept anyone?

    Thanks for reaching out Cheeseburger. We don't turn anyone away based on experience and you got it right we're pretty unique. We'll train you with proven methods that will raise your marksmanship levels quickly at the range and on the move and that will translate really well to being very effective in game. Friend me on Steam and I'll get you sorted out.
