TV RECREATIONS OF THE BATTLE

Episode: Grand Deceptions
And for good measure, right at the end, the credits feature something completely unrealistic. Zooming in to a shot of the model soldiers, the camera finally rests on a tiny miniature Columbo... Now I don't think he was ever at Gettysburg!
From the Columbo site:
Col. Pagett, at first reserved upon greeting Columbo, fancies himself the only Civil War expert in the room, when he shows Columbo the battle re-creation in his office. Columbo, much to the Colonel's surprise, immediately recognizes the scene not just as from Gettysburg, but as the Battle of Cemetery Ridge.
