2 July 1863 early morning.

It took me a long time to retake the “game”… a trip and real life interfering…

All troops are on the table (even the one’s that will arrive on the third of July as there was place to put them on).

If General Lee has had the aerial perspective I got he would have been shocked by the strenght of the Union position and the numbers of the Army of the Potomac.

In the pics you have General Meade original dispositions… some will move along as per III Corps (forward) and the reinforcement of Culp’s Hill.

Seriously, once i started putting the brigades into place I realized the hopeless situation of the Confederates attacking an entrenched superior Army uphill.

Well, I love recreating those battles on the tabletop but I am getting too old and prone to anguish when I imagine the real life casualties… if you know what I mean!


Union Corps gather at Gettysburg…
Cemetery ridge full of Union troops.
Longitudinal perspective…
A hard nut to crack!
