      According to Carman MS, Anderson's division is ordered by
      Longstreet, early on the morning of the 17, via M'Laws, "down the
      road (Shepherdstown Road) to the hill beyond the town, where it
      would receive orders."

      I have looked at the Trailhead Graphics map for Antietam and
      there looks as if there could be a hill on the Michael Farm, just
      north of the village, between the Landing Road and the
      northernmost street of the village, Potomac or Chapline Street.

      Does anyone know for sure where Anderson parked his division
      before he received orders to move towards the Sunken Road?
