<<  Here's a question about III Corps.

Before Sickles advanced to the Peach Orchard how was the III Corps arrayed?

Did they actually set up a defensive line II Corps to LRT or did they 
remain in marching or column formation?  >>

The elements of the Corps already on the field remained more or less massed in their overnight bivouac areas, and never did set up a defensive line down to LRT prior to advancing.  Even when the corps did move forward, if by no means happened all at once.
