With the advent of the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War (ACW) upon us, this is a simple app + widget that will unfold the news headlines and events of the ACW in real-time as they occurred.

This app recreates the experience of what it would have been like to read the headlines and news stories unfolding day-by-day... much like the BBC or New York Times widget do for news today.

American Civil War Gazette incorporates articles from both Northern and Southern newspapers. However, with the advantage of hindsight ACW Gazette attempts to have the stories reveal on the date (and time where possible) of the actual events rather than on the actual date of publication... which was often several days after the actual event.

To add the widget to your home screen, find a screen that has one complete row clear and hold your finger on the screen until the "Add to Home" menu pops up.

Then, select "Widget" and "American Civil War Gazette". The widget is live and will update every 30 minutes.

To see the full article, tap on the widget.

Hopefully, you will find this little experiment intriguing, educational and/or insightful.

The following are a few of the newspapers represented:
- New York Tribune
- New York Herald

    There are still ads after paying for content. That's just annoying. Other feedback - the monthly installs add another icon to the apps window instead of adding the content directly to the app. There's no option to purchase all past months in a single package and an option to automatically mark read articles would be welcomed. Adding those options would kick it up significantly but it's all ui quib

I was limited to a small number of free reads.,The rest contained only a message that if I wanted to read them, I would have to buy the extra edition. Let me re
