It was something that I'vc always wondered.  I have  wanted to know exactly 
where they were bivouacked.
Sickles's behavior in the advance shall always be  troubling.

<<  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.
