The Battle of Gettysburg was fought from 1st to 3rd July 1863, in Pennsylvania. The battle resulted the largest number of casualties in any battle of the entire war, and was the turning point of the American Civil War. Over three days General George Meade's Army of the Potomac defeated the Confederate army of General Robert E. Lee's, ending Confederate attempts to invade the North.
The first day ended with the Confederates in control of the town of Gettysburg but they had failed to push on to take the high ground. Day two was a day of a series of actions at both ends of the battlefield at Culp's Hill and Little Round Top. Day three ended with the disaster of Pickett's Charge.

Started playing hex strategy games 30 years ago but they took forever and inevitably
a child would ruin it by knocking the pieces to kingdom come. So I love the computer versions and gettysberg is one of the best and can be played in 3-4 hours.
Only complaint is I would love a re-inactement option at the end of the game also as well as setting Objectives to win the game, give the option to fight to the bitter end or let the computer send defeated units off the field of play?
NB I bought an iPad Pro which makes the game even better!
Game now works perfectly on my IPhone. Please ignore previous review
Happy at last
The last update seems to have fixed the problems. Thanks guys!
