Using two GNU Screen windows to double the number of lines displayed

When a desktop is quite wide, it's useful to have two text windows side-by-side, both of which are the same window from GNU screen, and with one of them in copy mode for scrolling.

What I need to know is how to get the window that's in copy mode to show the most recent lines that run off from the other window. E.g., one window shows the most recent 50 lines, and the other window shows lines 51-100, in effect enabling 100 lines to be seen at once (but without the effort of having to manually scroll). Is this possible?
