I think Fenton re-created the scene he saw before the road was cleared (or if he didn't see it first-hand, it might have been as it was described to him by eyewitnesses, or he could have seen battles like it before and known what the scene would look like).
Interesting points. I would say that we will never know definitively as there is no mention in Fenton's notes. Still I feel he should have left the scene unchanged. If the road had been cleared for use after the battle then that information was destroyed. Again a matter of historical usefulness.

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.
