For Civil War gamers and History of wargaming buffs: I have printed up a new batch of copies of Four Days at Gettysburg by Bob Bard. This booklet is a facsimile of the original. It contains a day-by-day history of the Battle as well as basic information on uniforms. There is also a complete set of wargaming rules. Four Days at Gettysburg was originally written in 1964 to accompany a set of 20mm wargame figures. I don't think they ever got to making those sets. Get your copy here (just scroll down): link

Why four days?

That was the title that Bard chose.

I was a customer of Bob Bard (54mm miniatures) back in the day! I didn't know that he ever published rules, nor that he made any 20mm miniatures.

Bob Bard did not make the 20mm figures. He wrote the game to accompany a set of 20mm figures made by someone else. I think LifelIke (the hobby company that made scenery, HO slot cars and trains) was behind the set.
