The Petersburg Battle App® is the perfect Civil War touring partner for your exploration of the Petersburg Campaign battlefields. Our GPS-enabled touring application will guide you to all the historic spots across the entire campaign landscape – from the initial fighting on the Eastern Flank and the Battle of the Crater to the final moments of the campaign at Five Forks and The Breakthrough.
Click on our "virtual signs" to access a wealth of information related to the very spot where you are standing. Onboard historian videos, audio accounts of soldiers from the battle, photos, orders of battle, chronologies, key facts, and more are just a click away. Never has so much valuable information been made available in such a portable device.
The Petersburg Battle App is just one of our expanding lineup of Battle Apps that are ready to be downloaded today. To learn more about all of our Battle App offerings visit our website at: https://www.battlefields.org/battleapps.
We've updated our app to reflect the name of our umbrella organization, the American Battlefield Trust, and made tweaks to help improve your battlefield experience.

Flawless... Thanks.and be a donor.
Love this, but really need universal app!
Understand role of GPS and that not all iPads have it, but it's a pretty big drawback as a study/ reference tool without native support! Also, please consider adding Richmond to your great collection of Civil War apps!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
