The new “Virginia Civil War Field Guide” app for iPad provides essential information in a portable, interactive format for more than 65 sites from National Parks to local walking trails.
Each site listing provides basic information such as brief history, street address, hours, fees, a website link and an interactive map for easy navigation. Both modern and historic images illustrate the app.
The “Virginia Civil War Field Guide” is edited by Don Pierce of CivilWarTraveler.com and designed by Bil Cullen of Communication Design in Richmond. Pierce is the editor of the “Guide to Virginia’s Civil War,” now in its 22nd year of publication. Cullen is the lead designer for the Civil War Trails program, now operating in six states.
“We wanted to offer an easy-to-use guide to Virginia’s Civil War sites that included both the famous battlefields and the best of the smaller, less-visited places,” Pierce said. “One of the many advantages of developing an app for iPad is that the information can be used both for planning at home and on the road and can be updated as things change.”
