Make History Fun And Take A Virtual Trip To Gettysburg With This Free App

Listen to this post with Alexa!

If you’re looking for more virtual and educational experiences you can have with your kids, this may be right up your alley. Starting today, you can travel back in time and re-live the Battle of Gettysburg.


Gettysburg: A Nation Divided, a new mixed reality app, gives you the opportunity to view the battle as it unfolds around you. And though it was supposed to cost $12.99, the creators decided to make it free for a limited time to assist teachers and parents who are scrambling to find remote learning opportunities.

Free Fun In Austin continues to highlight Austin area locations and activities that may not be available at this time. We encourage you to take all safety measures to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. It is our hope that the stories and features on this site will help inform your plans in the future.

Here’s a preview of what you’ll experience.

And here’s a fun little side note. The experience is narrated by actor Scott Eastwood, who happens to live right here in Austin. Here he is talking about the adventure.

You can download the app for iPhone here.

QuantumERA also offers an Alamo experience, though it costs $1.99
