This portrayal of the culminant conflict in the War Between the States takes the form of a turn-based strategy game, played in three-dimensional re-creations of the 1860s Southern Pennsylvania battlefields. Throughout the 16-mission single-player campaign, virtual generals take command of both Union or Confederate forces, and relive famous engagements such as Little Roundtop and Picket's Charge. A number of stand-alone scenarios are available as well, all set in detailed models of the actual Gettysburg landscapes. Multiplayer competition is supported, over a local network or the Internet, or through the game's play-by-e-mail feature.
