Description

Sid Meier's Gettysburg recreates the key battle of the American Civil War in real-time, over the exact terrain the soldiers faced. You can take control of the forces of either side, in either real or simulated situations.

Trivia

Brian Reynolds on his contribution to the game (his fifth):

"This was really Sid's game (I balanced the scenarios and beat all comers at multiplayer), but he went on vacation for a couple weeks toward the end and we all worked around the clock to sneak stuff in. I got my comeuppance in kind the next year on Alpha Centauri."
