1812 App Available

Professor Dove and his MA public history students have developed a smart phone app for the War of 1812. "The app follows "Route 1812" and "The Tecumeseh Parkway," historic driving routes throughout southwest Ontario that show you the sites, stories and sounds of the War". The app is free and can be searched or downloaded from QR codes on interpretive signage along the route.

News of the app has received some media attention. Professor Dove was interviewed by the Windsor Star and Heather Rivet, student, spoke with the CBC. For more details, see the Windsor Star article published on June 8, 2012.
