Gettysburg Magazine is essential for all students of the battle. It covers major and small actions of the battle and campaign, significant artifacts and personalities, and major topics usually found few other places.  Many of the articles focus upon on brigades activities on the battlefield or campaign. Topics have included the Federal Signal Corps, prisoners of war,  Federal and Confederate field hospitals furing the battle, civilian farms and civilians during campaign and the Army of the Potomac's military intelligence staff.  Since its inception, Gettysburg Magazine has offered detailed maps on all segments of the campaign.
CWL has taken the magazine to the battlefield and has walked the routes of the soldiers as described in the articles.  These walks are very helpful and are similar to the walks presented by the park's rangers during the battle's anniversary. The magazine is essential for those preparing for the Gettysburg Licensed Battlefield Guide examination.
