It's a great question, Rob.  I kinda doubt if we'll ever find the answer to it.  If you have not had the opportunity to do so, I would direct your attention to Robert K. Krick's collection of essays, "The Smoothbore Volley That Doomed the Confederacy," Louisiana State University Press, 2002.  Specifically, Chapter One - titled the same.  It's the best account (in my mind anyways) of the General's wounding and better yet, addresses your very question and some others.  Enjoy it - I sure did!
