Issy 1815 is the 44th battle in the Jours De Gloire series
Gettysburg is a simple wargame focused on the epic Civil War battle of Gettysburg (July 1-3, 1863). One player takes the role of the Army of the Potomac (General Meade) and the other controls the Army of Northern Virginia (General Lee). The game is played in half-day turns (6 turns total) in which time Lee’s Confederates attempt to open the road to Baltimore/Washington, or destroy Meade’s army.
