Replaying the Past: Digital Games about Civil War Baltimore

Thanks to the generous support of UMBC’s Hrabowski Fund for Innovation, I was able to teach a new class during Spring 2015.  History undergraduate and Masters degree students worked with undergraduates in the Game Development program (under the direction of Dr. Marc Olano) to build an on-line game about the 1861 Pratt Street Riots, arguably the site of the first blood shed in the American Civil War.

The full game is still being finished by the game development students, but in the meantime you can see the interactive text games built by the history students at replayingthepast.wordpress.com.
