Our Civil War game has been removed by Apple, but we won’t distort history to make them happy

The anti-Confederacy furor is getting to ridiculous levels, with retailers like Amazon and Apple banning the sale of anything bearing a Confederate flag (Che Guevara and communist merchandise, however, are still A-OK). The latest victim is a game, removed from the Apple app store, because the designers committed the crime of being historically accurate.

As you may have been already informed (Read Facebook link), Apple has removed our game from AppStore because of usage of the Confederate Flag. Ultimate General: Gettysburg could be accepted back if the flag is removed from the game’s content.

We accept Apple’s decision and understand that this is a sensitive issue for the American Nation. We wanted our game to be the most accurate, historical, playable reference of the Battle of Gettysburg. All historical commanders, unit composition and weaponry, key geographical locations to the smallest streams or farms are recreated in our game’s battlefield.

We receive a lot of letters of gratitude from American teachers who use our game in history curriculum to let kids experience one of the most important battles in American history from the Commander’s perspective.

Spielberg’s “Schindler’s List” did not try to amend his movie to look more comfortable. The historical “Gettysburg” movie (1993) is still on iTunes. We believe that all historical art forms: books, movies, or games such as ours, help to learn and understand history, depicting events as they were. True stories are more important to us than money.

Therefore we are not going to amend the game’s content and Ultimate General: Gettysburg will no longer be available on AppStore. We really hope that Apple’s decision will achieve the desired results.

We can’t change history, but we can change the future.

Evidently, what liberals want to do is whitewash history, because seeing things that are unpleasant might make people’s feelings hurt, and that’s obviously the worst thing that could ever happen. We might end up stupider and more ignorant for it, but hey, everyone will be happy, and that’s all that matters, right?
