FREE HISTORIC SOURCES
Both sides used Hardee’s Tactics The link allows you to download a copy of a Confederate edition of this guide to battalion and regimental level drills. You can explore how these work using the tutorial in the free demonstration version of the computer game “The Scourge of war” The full game is a very detailed model of combat of the time, but the tutorial allows you to see your units operated, and as a bonus has a detailed terrain model of the battlefield North and West of Gettysburg.
The higher commanders of both sides relied on Joumini’s Art of War
As you can see, both of these are largely based on Napoleonic concepts and offer few guides to adapting to the firepower available by the middle of the century.
Many of the sources for the campaign have been digitized.
