Abe Lincoln? There's an app for that

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - There's an app for Abe.

The Kentucky Historical Society has released an app that will guide users along a statewide tour of all of Abraham Lincoln's Kentucky connections.

It maps out sites in dozens of counties that are related to Lincoln, such as his birthplace, his wife's childhood home and places that were significant during the Civil War.

The tour is the latest addition to the society's "Explore Kentucky History' free app.

The first two tours were the War of 1812 and the Civil War. A tour of Danville is expected to be the next release.
