Gettysburg is an ultra-realistic, historically accurate military simulation of the Battle of Gettysburg, with a real GIS capability map including terrain data, ultra-realistic tactics that take into account the opposing unit's position, active troops, overall strength, fatigue, supply, morale, and the unit commander's command and control abilities.
The time: July 1, 1863. The place: Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The event: the most monumental battle of the American Civil War. Fight the Battle of Gettysburg as the Army of Northern Virginia under the command of Robert E. Lee, or as the Army of the Potomac under the command of George G. Meade.

Will you attempt the flanking maneuver on Little Round Top? Would you order Pickett's charge?
