Yes there is a reason why they used only pack  mules.

I  think  you are not familiar with the terrain when you discuss   the  
Gatlings.

There weren't even dirt roads and no sorts of  bridges across streams and  
rivers.  The columns of troops in  the field in this campaign did not even  
have supply wagons (mules  were used instead) or ambulances.  Those Gatling 
 
guns were the  only wheeled vehicles around.
