Description Edit | History

Gettysburg is a game played by moving blue and gray units representing the infantry, cavalry and artillery formations present at the historic battle on detailed mapboard representing the actual battlefield's terrain. You can be Gen. Robert E. Lee and command the hard-hitting Confederate Army of North Virginia… or You can be Gen. George G. Meade and command the stubborn but unlucky Union Army of the Potomac in its greatest crisis. Will history repeat itself or can it be changed? Your decisions will make the difference.

Note: The Smithsonian edition is (c)1992.

AH edition = 96 counters total (which includes 6 'blanks')

Charts to track unit movement for a game of Gettysburg '88, for reports or re-creating games, or even possibly hidden unit movement play. Each is broken into different days, so that they can be used for any scenario. Rows alternate colors, and spaces are blocked out until the unit arrives on the field.

6 Gettysburg '88 - Chain of Command charts
A series of charts displaying the chain of command for the Union & Confederate forces at Gettysburg. This is a player aid designed to assist use of the alternate rule for "Commanding Generals," where generals only grant their bonuses for units under their command. The Confederate forces are listed under a single chart. The Union forces are listed under a handful of charts, because trying to squeeze them onto a single page was illegible.
