Ratings and Reviews
Don't tour Shenandoah without it
If you are in the Shenandoah valley and are interested in civil war history, I highly recommend taking this app along with you. It has some interesting spots I would have missed otherwise!
If you read my other reviews , you know my Dad takes me to Civil War battlefields. This app covers Bull Run (Manassas) and other battlefields in Northern Virginia. I never go with my Dad without first downloading one of these apps. They are really cool.
Great tour of Manassas
I used this app to tour First and Second Manassas (Bull Run) and I saw more interesting sites than my previous visit. If you are going to see the battlefields, download this app first.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
