He also shared this link to an National Park Service article about the 2nd USSS at the battle of Gettysburg. If you have not seen it before, it is an excellent read and what I consider to be the best and most accurate telling of their July 2nd action near the Round Tops.

These two tintypes are probable Co. E 2nd USSS soldiers, formerly part of a Texas collection related to Luke Monroe Lewis of the same company/regiment.

This unidentified Vermont sharpshooter is a post-war print laminated to an interesting hollow stamped metal frame. A label on the back reads "For the salesman, hand painted medallions. Call C.A. Sanderson, Tel. 512-M, 48 Canal St. Brattleboro, Vermont" dating it to between 1907 and 1917 before Sanderson became an insurance salesman. I have not identified him yet. The original image would have been taken in the 2nd USSS camp near Falmouth between the spring and summer of 1862.

The soldier below is unidentified but the blurry cap in his hand looks to have a company H letter. The drooping scrub pine in the back appears in several other 2nd USSS photos dating to their stay in Falmouth, VA in the spring and summer 1862. No doubt a Vermont sharpshooter.

This photograph of Edward R. Campbell, 11th Vermont, was acquired with one of his brother, Henry L. Campbell, listed above in Co. H, 2nd USSS; they were recently acquired together.
