I think this commment from the review sums up what most critics concluded:
At two hours in length there's really just no way to properly cover the lead up to and fallout from three days of constant conflict. It's not a surprise that this History Channel production falls short of standing as anything even close to the definitive statement on the battle of Gettysburg and you don't necessarily get the impression that the filmmakers were trying to do that in the first place. This is not a piece for the academic viewer, but for those not already experts in the history of the Civil War, it will definitely be of some interest and is a good 'gateway drug' that could lead to those who develop an interest in the subject matter seeking out more scholarly works on it.
