Complexity of the Civil War made clear for kids

An exceptional and thorough telling of the war from its causes, the Dred Scott decision, the abolitionists, the war and how the states lined up, to the battles and the war's aftermath. Filled with great information and fun ways of presenting it. I love the interactive timeliine and the moving audio clip from the Gettysburg Address.

Great history app for kids

This app really brings an important time in American History to life in a meaningful way. Especially enjoyed the historical timeline presented in an animated hand-written journal. Very cool app.
