As we approach the 150th anniversary of the Battle Of Gettysburg, people visiting the site of the bloodshed can use apps on their smartphones to better understand what happened.
According to an Associated Press article on ABCnews.com, The Civil War Trust, a nonprofit battlefield preservation group, has released 11 official smartphone apps.
With the anniversary, there won’t be enough guides, or park personnel to host all the visitors and many may turn to the apps.
This is not the first time Gettysburg has had a connection to technology. The battle aftermath was documented by the then new process of photography.
