McPherson's Ridge


Two brigades of Brigadier General John Buford’s First Union Cavalry Division had been bivouacked on McPherson’s Ridge, northwest of Gettysburg, when Heth’s Division of Hill’s Corps (Army of Northern Virginia) approached from Cashtown on July 1st. Realizing that this was the first element of the entire Confederate Army, and that the commanding heights of Cemetery Ridge (1.25 miles behind him) was the best defensive terrain for a hundred miles, Buford knew what he must do. With fewer than 3,000 troopers, he must hold the van of the Confederate Army until the Union infantry could arrive. He knew his casualties would be heavy, but he also knew there was no one else to do the job.

Return to 1980 and try this regimental simulation of the first hours at Gettysburg. The Union player must hold and delay the Confederates on a series of ridges until the First Corps can arrive. The Confederate player must attempt to take Gettysburg and secure the heights of Cemetery Ridge. Three scenarios for two players are included in this game.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
