Narrow focus, overpriced

Overall it’s an OK app, but at $5 it’s a bit overpriced for what it tells you.

Also, why is the app solely focused on the rich white men from the civil war and earlier? There’s clearly a lot more in the cemetery, so it’s weird to focus so narrowly. For instance, what’s up with the Jewish cemetery? Could be interesting to talk about more.

Finally, and I know that the south does tend to have a... different... interpretation of the civil war, but to tell the story of an enslaved man taking actions to fight agains “northern oppression” is honestly insane. Like, I know you don’t want to focus on the atrocities of slavery, but if you’re gonna talk about it, don’t gloss over it like it was no big deal. And, if you’re going to talk about slavery, definitely don’t pick a story of a man who helped his enslaver as though he was a hero fighting for liberty, when he had no liberty himself.

Little pricey but cheaper than a tour

It’s a lot cheaper than a tour and had great information and fun facts that many of the other tours I’ve been on never mentioned. The person that mentioned it was narrow minded clearly didn’t go to the Jewish ones on the map because they were ones on there. “It’s rich white people” I don’t see how the tour guides could help that and the cemetery started from a group of rich white families in the 1800s, I’m not sure what diversity you expected to see. Anyways, I really enjoyed the different voices that told the stories as well. It’s not super accurate on the map locations but the voices tell you where to go next and with the names on all the plots it’s impossible not to find and gave us a game to find the next one so it wasn’t that difficult, people complaining are being a little ridiculous it’s not like it has to be there or it won’t play...

An enjoyable self guided tour

Although the app was a little clunky to use, it was informative and we found our way around to all the grave plots without too much difficulty. We found the maps helpful and accurate. The pictures of the grave plots were especially helpful to make sure we found our way around. Although we are southerners ourselves, we found the narrators to be entertaining, informative, and we really enjoyed the different southern drawls!
