Narrated by actor Scott Eastwood, this award-winning, immersive, time-travel adventure, takes you back to July 1, 1863 to witness the Battle of Gettysburg. The app uses exciting mixed reality technologies combined with photo-real animation to explore the story of the turning point in the Civil War. Historically accurate in every detail, this experience puts you in the middle of the battle to stand beside the people who made history and to watch the battle unfold around you.

Compelling and fun for all, try out the app for free. Activities include searching for virtual historical artifacts on the battlefield and collecting virtual Civil War gold coins as rewards while rising through the ranks from Private to Major General.

Animated archival photos of soldiers, women, and an African American journalist come to life as Avatars, who tell their little-known stories. Their plights are revealed to share the rich understanding of the effects the battle that caused the most casualties of the Civil War had on ordinary people.

Hours of fun

My family and I really enjoy going to the battlefield w the app and using it. There are a couple spots that don’t allow us to “arrive” at the destination though. Wish that would get fixed (spot 2 - peace light, spot 8a - bottoms of little round top). That’s all I know of for right now. Educational and interactive for our kids to check out.
