Designed for visitors to Gettysburg, the Gettysburg Battle app (opens in new tab) can be used as a virtual tour of the Civil War battlefield. It includes video, audio, and an abundance of information on notable sites at Gettysburg. Try out these other virtual field trips: Monet paintings, art museum, panoramic views. This app is made for an iPhone but works great on an iPad or iPod Touch.
