MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - The Civil War Trust is rolling out a new "battle app" to mark the 150th anniversary of the Second Battle of Manassas.
The battle application making its debut Tuesday includes video featuring top historians and topographical maps, among other features. The free smartphone application is the latest in a series developed by the trust on key Civil War battles.
Others explore the battles of Bull Run, Cedar Creek, Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg and Malvern Hill. The trust says more than 60,000 people have downloaded the trust's battle apps.
The apps are created with funding from the Virginia Department of Transportation and created in partnership with NeoTreks, a leader in mobile GPS-based touring.
