Often doesn't cooperate

Today, I had to uninstall and reload the app after it said "No listings" for EVERYTHING, and now I'm having the same issue after just two uses! Also, the pictures in the listings are barely legible unless you tap on the location. The UI still needs work, in addition to reliability improvements.

Fun, smart, easy to use.

My oh my! Ever since I've downloaded this app I've been wild about the 1860's. This app is VERY simple to use and did not take long for me to figure it out. I have also been using the photo feature regularly. It's a fun addition! I'm sure Alexander Gardner would be proud of my civil war photo skills.

Great App for navigating Civil War trails

If you want to catch some of Maryland's most important historical sites, this App is for you. I love the quick-hitting lines about why each site is important. Can't wait to get out and do some more exploring!
