Surprising Masterpiece

Coming from a network that has made its recent fortunes on the backs of reality television, I wasn't exactly expecting much depth from The Civil War Today. While there are some areas that need polish, the content this app provides is breathtaking in scope.

For every day of the civil war (nearly 1500 days) this app provides you with an article describing the events of that particular day from the perspective of citizens of the times. You also get letters and diary entries recorded for each day. Every other day or so brings a secondary article that gives additional context.

There are also plenty of photos and relevant maps for each day, although these are often very slow to load.

The net result is an app that does a great job giving you a feel of how the Civil War unfolded from the perspective of those that lived through it.
