      Gang;

      In his chapter in TATF on September 16, Harsh mentions the
      movement of Ripley's brigade of D H Hill up towards the Mumma
      Farm. In a footnote to that same paragraph, he implies that G B
      Anderson then moved his brigade up to where Ripley had originally
      been.

      However, the Antietam NBP battlefield tablet for Anderson's
      Brigade (no longer there) implies that Anderson's brigade did not
      shift their position from near Boonsborough Pike until 0630 on
      September 17th after battle has been joined.

      Questions here:

      1. Who is right?
      2. Where was Ripley originally sited in the original line of
      battle by Hill?
