The Civil War Prelude to War page
150 years ago on 12 April 1861 the first shot was fired to launch the U.S. into Civil War. To commemorate this time in our history A&E launched a new iPad application called The Civil War Today that will provide you with daily updates for the next four years. For $7.99 you get years of history on your iPad.
Check out my full ZDNet Mobile Gadgeteer post for details on the application.
