Post subject:  RESEARCH HELP/ Questions ON BERDAN SHARPSHOOTERS

My name is Anthony Palazzolo. I am a college Senior at Susquehanna University. I have spent the last two years researching and tracing the origins of this fascinating unit and its accomplishments both in the Civil War and in Military History. I was wondering if anyone could help me find find answers to these questions :

1. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY SOURCES ( LETTERS, BOOK, DIARIES, NEWSPAPERS) THAT HAVE OPINIONS/ COMMENTARY THAT FAVOR OR DISAPPROVE THE FORMATION OF THE BERDAN SHARPSHOOTERS From 1860s???

2. Modern day Critics who favor or dislike these units?

3. Did the men of the 1st and 2nd Sharpshooters face any moral issues with using such powerful and advanced weapons against the enemy. Is Their SOLID EVIDENCE that anyone knows of that supports and reveals some kind of internal conflict the 1st and 2nd Sharpshooters had with sharps rifles and using advanced tactics against failing and declining Napoleonic tactics ??

Thanks
