Guides you through the Battle of Malvern Hill
With videos and plenty of text, this app will take you on a driving tour of Malvern Hill Battlefield, the site of the last battle of the 7 Day Battles between the Union and Confederate Armies on July 1, 1862 as part of the Civil War. There is plenty of great information here - videos and text, to help the Tourist discover and learn about this amazing battle. Only suggestion - NPS needs to provide better marking on some of the stops. - and parking. Doable, but confusing for a few. Directions were spot on, but ambiguity at the actual location. Wish they had little signs at each of the stops denoting the tour location.
I have all of the battle apps that have been released to date. They just keep getting better. Thank you, Civil War Trust!!!
I would contend Malvern Hill is not as widely known compared to the battles covered in previous Battle Apps. This app certainly illuminated it for me. Continued great work by the Civil War Trust.
