Actually, those not armed w/ Spencers were carrying P53 Enfield Rifle Muskets. The majority of the men were carrying Spencer Rifles but there were a smattering of Henry Rifles as well as Spencer Carbines in the Brigade.

A good inexpensive book to own is "An Introduction to Civil War Small Arms" by Coates & Thomas at around $10 it's pretty hard to beat as a quick reference.
