Apple’s App Store spotlights Civil War Trust ‘battle apps’

Apple’s App Store, known for being incredibly selective about what it highlights out of the thousands of apps that are in the wild, has been featuring the Civil War Trust’s battle apps–the smartphone, historian-led, GPS-enabled gizmos for touring some of the nation’s most-storied battlefields.

The latest in the trust’s series of apps–for the Battle of Chancellorsville–was announced today.

The App Store link for it is here.

Previously released apps are available, for free, via Apple for the battles of Gettysburg, Fredericksburg and Manassas/Bull Run.
