Feedback for the Civil War Augmented Reality Project and the establishment of HistoriQuest LLC:

Audrey Watters at ReadWriteWeb: Augmented Reality Field Trips & the 150th Anniversary of the U.S. Civil War

From Wes Fryer’s blog Moving at the Speed of Creativity: Civil War Augmented Reality Project Becomes HistoriQuest

From Michael Lynch, author of The Past in the Present: Mobile Technology, Augmented Reality, and the Civil War

“This is one of the most thoughtful and innovative attempts to integrate technology into historical interpretation that I’ve ever seen.”

From Michael Lynch, author of The Past in the Present: http://pastinthepresent.wordpress.com/2011/02/20/mobile-technology-augmented-reality-and-the-civil-war/

“..I think what these folks are proposing is eminently doable. It’s easy to get caught up in the tech side of such projects, so their focus on the end user is laudable.”
Shawn Graham, Electric Archaeology: Digital Media for Learning and Research, http://electricarchaeologist.wordpress.com

“..I think this is pretty darn cool.  Integrating technology into a public history setting is no easy task; you’ve got to balance the desire to reach people who are tech-savvy with the need to accommodate those who aren’t.  Furthermore, you’ve got to make sure that the technology in question is actually the most effective medium to convey the information, or it becomes nothing more than an expensive gimmick.  I think these guys are on exactly the right track.  They’ve figured out how to exploit the available technology to enhance the visitor’s experience in a way that would be impossible with any other medium, and to do so in a way that meets the needs of many potential audiences.”
Michael Lynch, Past in the Present: American History in the Academic and Public Realms, http://pastinthepresent.wordpress.com/

“..a worthy effort using state of the art technology to promote the study of the Civil War and increase attendance and revenue at historic sites.”
Richard G. Williams, Jr., Old Virginia Blog, http://oldvirginiablog.blogspot.com/

“..It’s about making education relevant and fun to all generations.. Consider donating to the funding of the project. They’ve created a fun, Civil-War flavored funding campaign on Kickstarter..Hats off to the team..”
