With the victories at both Gettysburg and Vicksburg under their belts, the Union army's morale was sent skyrocketing, and the Confederate's plummented, not to mention Lee lost about 1/3 of his forces, and enough equipment (just at Gettysburg) to make it impossible to ever mount an offensive again.

Was Gettysburg overrated? No. I don't think so. The way it's been broadcast as a 'turning point' may not be totally correct, but Gettysburg isn't overrated, in my opinion.
