If no Yankee unit was near enough to be shooting, then what were the Confedrates shooting at??

At the split second that the shot was fired, Johnston could have been facing in any direction...i.e; giving orders to his troops, facing the enemy to see their direction/formation/movement, he could have begun to turn in order to move or see from a different angle.....It's split second bad timing....At a certain point in space and time, he could have just as easily "turned" into the path of a bullet.....

This is an interesting post, however, because I'd not yet heard the theory that he was struck by one of his own.

Do we know if the fatal minie ball had 3 grooves or 2??....
