Possibly SSI's best seller in the Civil War simulation market, Gettysburg is a detailed grand tactical recreation of the Civil War's most famous battle. While its graphics may appear dated, the game play is still high enough to garner a recommendation. CGWs Strategy Game of the Year for 1987.

With the two player option you play more or less in real time, with an hour of game time providing an hour of battle. Saving to a disk is therefore almost essential unless you have a lot of time and patience. These are, however, only small criticisms of a good, if very slow moving, game.
 
There is little question in my mind that GTP is one of the most enjoyable "conflict simulations" (read--war games) that it has been my pleasure to play in a very long time. After years of interest in the factors leading up to, and the conduct of the American Civil War, it is a very welcome addition to the growing number of games on this subject and possibly the best currently available.
