Ole,
I know of one other regimental sized group of sharpshooters though they did not get the press of Berdan's boys in green.
Birge's Western Sharpshooters, the "Squirell Tails", a.k.a. 14th Missouri, a.k.a. 66th Illinois Sharpshooters, a.k.a. Western Sharpshooters.

Arkansas had several battalions of sharpshooters but never a full regiment.
