The Fredericksburg Battle App® is the perfect touring partner for your exploration of the Fredericksburg battlefield. Our GPS-enabled touring application will guide you through four detailed tours that cover the entire Civil War battlefield - from the initial fight for the town to the Union attack on Prospect Hill to the bloody repulses at the Sunken Road.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is great
I removed this battle like it was yesterday. I'm impressed with how accurate the maps are.
These are fantastic -- why is the price so low?
This is a great app to take with you on the battlefield -- videos from historians, letters and audio from people who were actually there, on the spot where you are standing -- but it is also great if you want to tour the battlefield from home! It's like having a bunch of the best books right in your phone. If you bought an old CD driving or walking tour of the battlefield, you might pay 20 bucks. To get this incredible amount of in-depth detail for $2.99 is a steal. I'm really looking forward to my next trip to Fredericksburg. Do More battlefields!!!
Helpful, beneficial, interesting & useful app
This app is excellent. I moved to Fredericksburg two years ago & knew squat about its history (except for the 'Headlines' of the Civil War). This app opened my eyes up to the rich history of this country that's in our own back yard. I have now acquired some books (& intend to get more) exclusively devoted to the subject, all thanks to this well designed (easy to use, accurately described, elaborately conceived) app. Shall also download all other apps devoted to the Civil War Battles. 5 Stars to this app, & Kudos! to its developers ;-)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
