Civil War Cycling’s flashcards are for students who want help memorizing Gettysburg’s Orders of Battle to the brigade-level. My favorite reference on this topic is Bradley M. Gottfried’s book, Brigades of Gettysburg (New York: Skyhorse Publishing, 2012). Also, Civil War Trust  provides an easy-to-read Order of Battle from the Official Records (which are available online through Cornell University Library).
