You can have the app show you information by day of the battle and by the forces at Battle —for example, show the actions of Union forces on Day 2. I highly recommend the app when you visit Gettysburg —it adds a lot of information and makes the experience more educational and more informative. The Auto Tour map provided by the Visitors Center only has short paragraphs summarizing points.
While this app is very informative, well organized, and full of historical photos to help visitors better understand the progression of the three days of the battle. We were about to buy the audio tour from the gift shop when someone mentioned this app to me. What a great suggestion.

The GPS enabled map is a masterpiece. The write ups at each stop are concise and informative. The audio and video inserts are great too. Someone spent a LOT of time on this app.

I never have and in truth I probably never will visit these historic acres, however, this book has allowed me to get so close that I feel as though I once stood on Little Round Top and watched the whole terrible drama unfold.

Even in the electronic format that I read this book, it is stunningly well presented, with clear maps and some of the best known contemporary photographs of that terrible battle and its aftermath.
We know for sure exactly where certain events happened because we can match the modern-day locations to where the old, period photographs were taken. The Gettysburg battlefield was unique in the Civil War in that it was both heavily photographed and well preserved, allowing us to follow in the exact footsteps of the original photographers who took photos that they considered the most worthy at that time.
Though no photos were taken while the battle was in progress, a large number were taken just a few days later - while Lee's army was still retreating back to Virginia, and before mothers learned their boys lay dead at a place called Gettysburg. All of the best of the period photos known taken of Gettysburg in the days or month after the battle are included in this book, most with easily followed map locations of where they were taken, and even GPS coordinates.
Where no immediate photos were taken of an interesting subject, I've included the earliest photo available, sometimes one or two decades after the battle. Whether you tour the battlefield from your easy chair, or actually walking the field, I hope and believe you'll find this book to be an invaluable companion. Show More Show Less.
