Thought was going to be interesting but...

So according to the description, this was written by a college professor. Upon reading that, I had high hopes for this test. Overall it's fairly accurate with "high school textbook material" however for a college level, it is not (thus making me question if this was really written by a college professor or a high school teacher). First question I got, pretty simple correct. Next question "what does the S in U. S Grant stand for?" This question is referencing Ulysses S. Grant, the last commander of Union forces for the duration of the war. His middle name is Samuel, which is one of the answer choices. Yet the correct answer is "Nothing"... Well, you won't be getting my money for the full version that's for sure!

Civil War Lite Game

What is amazing to me is that all that I have learned regarding th Civil War was mostly my husband, the rest was particular movies about the Civil War that were the closest to real history of this time. The way I was getting so many corrects with quickness, I was not sure who was playing. Enjoyed the gallery, very interesting book list also. Thank you. 😳

It contains good questions but other than that it's pretty bland and gets boring quickly. Also not that many question but I like the system of taking away wrong answers after a certain time. The design of the app is obviously not new so it's not very good but overall it helps you learn about the topic in this case the civil war so it's alright.
