William Frassanito has identified this as Captain Edward J. Jones's battery, 11th Massachusetts Light Artillery near Petersburg, Virginia on June 21, 1864. Photographer Mathew Brady can be seen just behind the shoulder of the man standing at the left.

In that first closeup, it looks like maybe one guy has rammer down barrel with them holding the lanyard tight.
