i know during the gettysburg campaign that the fuses used by the confederates were defective. A few months before the battle the richmond armory had exploded and lee was being supplied with fuses from charleston sc. the fuses from charleston burned slower then the fuses from richmond which caused the artillery overshoot during the battle. which could be the reason the artillery overshot during pickett's charge
