About the App

The 16 stops and 31 driving tracks are all GPS activated and hands free so you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road and sights to see.  These stops and tracks are packed with information containing leaders and soldiers in the battle, monuments and markers that honor them, artillery and weapons used, facts and figures, and a YouTube link depicting battle reenactment.   The Gettysburg Tours team also wanted to include local art in their app. Users will see beautiful dramatic paintings by Dale Gallon, a world renowned local artist whose art tells a history lesson in themselves.
