Ratings and Reviews
This was actually useful for preparing for a visit; a few more features might help while actually visitiing but I don't know that most people would use these so I will rate this app very highly for what it does well-show you around the site prior to the visit.
Some minor caveats aside, this was a useful app with good information. Love history apps-great use of mobile tech
Awesome app for all you history buffs!!
What an awesome app!! If you are a Civil War buff then you are going to love this! Not only does this app have an overview of the battle field, but shows pics and maps, but photos of generals and troop movements. I have never been to the battle field and only live about 4 hours away. This makes me want to go and use the app on the walking tour.
