All but one in the book involve CS arsenals. Augusta was not discussed in this book about arsenal disasters mainly because this one involved men and boys. It just didn't fit the title of "Gunpowder Girls". I don't offhand recall which but one of these explosions occurred on Friday the 13th. And another didn't get much press coverage because it happened on the same day as a major battle, Antietam, I think.
Three differant explosions are discussed in the book "Gunpowder Girls" by Tanya Anderson.

Thanks Euty, It was the “Gunpoder Gurls” I was thinking of.
Thanks TFoley for your info. I didn’t realize there were several different explosions.
