Essentially these men are adopting the 'Right Shoulder Shift Arms' position, but many are not doing it very well

Maybe because they arenīt Regulars and arenīt that well trained?
The Confederate States only had a tiny regular army;

They were VERY well trained. That CS "Regular" army was primarily on paper only, and regular units, such as the 3rd CS Infantry were, in fact, state units simply given that designation. The idea was that after the war, those state units so assigned would convert to become the "Regular" CS Army.

The poses you see on those miniatures are the result of lazy researchers and designers. 10 minutes of research online would have proven that.

Same with those big honkin' Bowie knives. Those things disappeared right quickly, either taken away by the Ordnance officers or tossed aside by the men themselves. It's an added weight and an encumbrance to movement, neither worth the effort to keep such a blade.
