Just finished reading, “Beyond the Run.” Author feels that 1st Tn. Was on the right of Archer’s first attack instead of 13th Ala.
Is that the current believe of most?

Gottfried's "The Maps of Gettysburg" shows the 13th Alabama on the right .

It's clear that the 7th and 14th Tennessee were on the left and the 1st Tennessee and the 13th Alabama were on the right (with the 5th Alabama Battalion lingering in the rear near Willoughby's Run) but we don't know the exact order they were in. I tend to think that their line was 7th TN - 14th TN - 1st TN - 13th AL because it makes the most sense to me but I'm not invested in this order.
