Hey Roger, welcome back glad you didn't see Davy Jones' locker.

You know the thing that bothers me more than the two cartridege boxes are his cavalry boots versus brogans when he is obviously an infantryman. 

I could see a need for two cartridge boxes when extra rounds were added but most accounts I recall seem to indicate the men stuffed them in their pockets and haversacks.  I doubt soldiers would wear both in front as depicted because where would you have your cap pouch?  If I were to wear two I'd put one on my right hip per usual practice and one on my left front and try to move it to my right hip when I emptied out the on on my hip.
