Apps for smartphones and tablet computers are rapidly becoming a way of life for many folks. The Kentucky Historical Society offers a free app that allows you to find historical points of interest and information on the Civil War. When you press a “pin” on the map, a story comes up with bits of past facts. The app is available through the app store at Google Play or iTunes—search “Kentucky History” and look for the Explore Kentucky History app. Similar information can be found on the Web site www.history.ky.gov.
