Dang! Gotta come back. Never saw an account where Johnston was wounded by a minie. It was, certainly a ball of some sort (and a minie is, technically, a ball). But what has been determined is that an unknown missile cut General Johnstons's popltieal (whatever) artery and bled him out. He died. The question was, did a Confederate bullet do him in. We can't know.

He caught one from somewhere, and he died from it.
