Caption: Archer's Brigade Moves Forward
Additional Description: In the opening phases of the battle, Archer's Brigade deployed off the Chambersburg Pike to confront the cavalry of Buford's Federal Division. This view looks west from Stone Avenue across the open fields south of the Chambersburg Pike. Initially, the 7th Tennessee Infantry advanced across the ground here. Archer's Brigade was forced back beyond Willoughby Run by the arrival of Cutler's and Meredith's (Iron) Brigades. The run passes through the distant tree line.
