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.
The game also covers other of smaller engagements in the run up to the greatest battle of the war.

Ratings and Reviews
AI needs work, Resupply feature needs work
After playing this game I have come to the conclusion that the Confederate forces at Gettysburg are not lacking in supplies at all, all units are sharpshooters and that the Army of the Potomac won this battle by luck (which could be argued as true historically, but more likely due to Lee's overconfidence, but I digress) The union troops can't seem to be able to hit the side of barn from 25 yards, they are always out of ammunition, and are basically horrible soldiers. The Resupply feature/Ammunition situation is a nice feature if it actually worked. Instead of being out of ammo all the time. This would be getting 5 stars if it worked. Also you should break out some of the battles by location, not just little round top. The peach orchard, Culps hill etc., Cemetery Ridge, etc.. In addition to the whole day's battles. See what you can do.
No pass and play option
Great game love the American civil war and love your games but you mean to tell me that you charged me 5 bucks for a game that doesn’t have pass and play by the way you would get a lot more buyers if you add pass and play
Love the History, But Needs Work on AI
So I have a unit with 2 guys left surrounded on three sides by my six units. One of my units is a fresh unit of 10 veteran soldiers - fires 4 times into this little two unit force (plus equal amount from my other 5 units) before I am able to kill him. In the mean time, this small unit kills one of my guys every volley. This happens numerous times in open terrain. Uh, no, should not happen. I switch sides and notice the same thing - enemy has Uber Mensch who do not miss while my volleys seem to bounce off. Playing standard AI.
Secondly, I keep losing Gettysburg even though there are no rebs within Gettysburg.
Third, every once in a while after my units fire or are fired on some red colored message pops up on my unit - small font and too briefly for me to read what it says.
Fix these nits and this would be a must have game. Still enjoyable as is, though I refuse to commit to playing Gettysburg (prefer the small battles that are also included) for umpteen hours knowing I will lose due to what I see are flaws.
