Sid Meiers Gettysburg and Antietam are my two favorite pc games. However, I am very frustrated and disappointed with Firaxis. These are two very old games. When I bought them originally I had a disc drive and easily downloaded them. Now, no disc drive and can't find a way to download both games. I am truly angry with Firaxis over this matter. Both games were hugely popular when they were released and Firaxis seems to have let them go buy the wayside refusing to keep them available w/new developed technology since their inception. I really wish I could acquire them again but Firaxis doesn't seem to care about that.

I believe I know that same guy that could beat it in one battle. He worked on a graveyard shift in California and told me that story. He also beat Medal of Honor 2 on the psp while only looking in one direction due to the joystick being broken

download Antietam, it also contains gettysburg. All works great on windows 10. I didn't have to do anything other than unzip and extract with winRAR

Changing lee.exe compatibility mode in Windows 7 Pro, does not work for this game. It HAS to be Windows XP, I used SP3 compatibility mode. The game WILL work, however, you should download the XP fix from here before playing as it does fix some graphic issues.
I couldn't get the v6.00 patch to work, but the XP fix did install and work.
All I did was, download the .iso file, open the .iso with WinRAR and extract it. Next, download and run the fix Win XP/2K file, then go to the folder where you extracted Gettysburg to, set compatibility mode for lee.exe to Winxp SP3, it works. This was done in Windows 7 Pro. I don't have and never will have JunkWin 10.

For Windows 10 users. Use WinRAR to mount ISO file. After that extract everything from ISO to a folder. Then just double click lee.exe and it plays. No setup required.

i got the game to work by:
downloading iso file, patch v6.00 and win/eng file in the download area.
I then unzipped iso into a "new folder", ran "set-up" in new disk drive that was created.
patched the installed game in created fireaxis folder, dropped in win/eng file and ran file. The win/eng file could not work.
I then went to rlee exe in game folder and changed compatability to Win95.
The game is running perfectly and I now have back one of my favorite games I had since lost.
Thank You Abandonware! :)

My friend said he can win the campaign in one battle, it took him 8+ hours while he was working grave yard shift. I won't tell how he did it but its legendary.

Can we have a tutorial on how to install this game, how to install the patch and how to run it on Windows 10 please?

Does this install work with Windows 10? Can someone provide step by step instructions of how to run it once the download is complete? (Including how to use the Patch)?? thank you.

Great memories with this game chasing yankees! Truly the best civil war game ever.

Imho the best adaptation of ACW ever - its complexity is just right, not as simplistic as "Ultimate General: Gettysburg" and not as complicated as the enormous "Scourge of War: Gettysburg", but something in between. It has a great replayability too, because you can try out different strategies. Fantastic game, and highly atmospheric.
