Avalon Hill – Gettysburg. The first one with boxes on the map board and different sized counters based on the type of unit.

I've never played the battle as a board game, only as a miniature game.

The original Avalon Hill version. I received a copy for my tenth birthday in 1958 and it changed my life.

Battle Hymn, Gettysburg by Compass Games for the battle. Roads to Gettysburg by Avalon Hill for the campaign.

AH, any version

GMT's Three Days of Gettysburg is the reworked version of SPI's Terrible Swift Sword. The GMT version is a much better system and the latest version of the rules that just came out in Death Valley are very well done.

AH Gettysburg 88 as it was the only one I played to completion

Battle Cry breaks the battle down into separate days and locations. It's certainly not a detailed treatment, or a game specific to the battle, but it's still fun.
