Accidental in what way? That given the time constraints, and what he
found upon reaching his wing, that's what he ended up with?
Or accidental insofar as he started with this formation, but didn't
have time, or didn't take time (depending on how you interpret
events) to get his units deployed to carry out the en echelon attack?
In order to conform to Bragg's orders, divisions needed to be strung
out from north to south - by definition of the en echelon attack.

Also to add to this is that there isnt any edvidence that McLaw's
Divison(Kershaw and Humphrey) was even in line behind Hood.
