This is probably the most aptly named application I've run across in any educational genre.
The Spirit of 76 is not a cut and dry history app that teaches about the American Revolution and independence of our nation. It is a super in-depth look at the event leading up to the Declaration of Independence, formation of the US Constitution and other related events and information.
The history of our nation in this app can be approached from numerous different angles. You can research every individual who signed the Declaration of Independence and what roles they played in the nation and other historical events. The dates and events can also be studied themselves. If that wasn't enough, certain topics of interest can be searched for and studied as themselves. The data is correlated across all these different avenues of research.
My favorite part of the app is the QUOTES feature which provides hundreds of quotations from our Founding Fathers. It gives a great overall flavor to the spirit and intellect that formed our nation.
Rounding out the app is a collection of books available from Amazon.com that will broaden any student's familiarity with this time and place and these men.
Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
