Fellow Sharpshooters

I’ve submitted a series of website links that I used as a resource for an upcoming 10 year research project entitled: “Who were they? The USSS Buglers”.

You will find a wealth of information published by the State’s of Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and Minnesota about their citizen-Sharp Shooters participation during the late War.

I’ve included a link to a pair of speeches attributed to William Humphrey’s, who served in Co. E 2nd USSS. Here’s the introduction:

Quote:
Two handwritten speeches about the 2nd United States Sharpshooters, possibly written by William H. Humphrey, who served in Company E from 1861 to 1865. The first speech, 66 pages long, was written for a "campfire" at EssexCentre, Vermont on March 9, 1888, on the topic of the Battle of Antietam andt h e role of the 2nd United States Sharpshooters. The second speech, 15 pages long, was written for a reunion of the Fourth Vermont Infantry Regiment held at Montpelier, Vermont on October 19, 1888, and gives a summary of the service of the 2nd United
States Sharpshooters from 1861 to 1864
