bull run appYou don’t need your imagination to envision what happened at Manassas. There’s an app for that! The first questions people ask when they visit a battlefield are: “Where am I? What am I looking at?” You can get the whole story in the palm of your hand with the FREE iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad App. It packs text, video, audio, old photos and animated maps into a GPS-enabled, state-of-the-art pocket guide. 

Showing the user’s location on a battlefield map, it provides an overview of the fight, video explanations by historians, and audio accounts — read by actors — of soldiers who fought there. It also has a timeline of the battle, lists of units that fought, and photographs old and new of battlefield scenes and participants. In addition there are 13 formal tour stops indicated on the app.

This is a giant leap forward to connect visitors to the First and Second Battles of Manassas, the Civil War and our history by making it a personal experience.
