I suspect it depends to a degree on the battlefield... Shiloh, Chicamauga, The Wilderness, you may be right. Those fields are/were limited due to terrain, forest conditions, underbrush, etc. At the same time, Sharpsburg, Gettysburg, Vicksburg all offered open vistas and the need for long range shooting...
Sorta like deer huntin.. you need a brush gun i.e. .30-30 in some places and a flat shootin reach out and touch 'em gun ... i.e. .270, etc in others...
