You are about to discover a collection of places that express our brand of "All Kinds of Character."
The places here are remarkable not only for their architecture, but also for their stories.
You will learn about fiery women, charitable leaders, dedicated soldiers, and selfless heros.
This cultural map will help you plan you trip and take you to where these stories unfold.
Read on to become familiar with the toolbar, markers, and labels.
Quickly pull what you want to see using these tools:

Markers pinpoint places on the map. They are color-coded according to their subject and layer:
|Big House and Behind the Big House|
|Civil War Sites|
|African American Heritage|
|Civil War Sites|
Star markers designate places that you don't want to miss.
Tap a marker to see its label. The label
names the place and gives a tag line and a link for the stories.
To close the label, tap the 'x' in the upper right corner.
The map displays up to 4 labels at a time. If a label is hidden but
you can see its marker, tap the marker to bring it to the front. Labels sometimes cover up markers;
you will need to close them to see the markers.
That covers the basics for the tools, markers, and labels! If this window automatically appeared on startup, tap
to close this window, and you will see places on the African American Heritage layer
as set by the Layers tool. Or, continue reading...
Places shown by one tool can only be hidden using the same tool. On the Layers and List tools, uncheck the
corresponding checkbox. On the Views tool, tap the "hide" button..
Note that any one of the "hide" buttons will also hide My Tour 1 and My Tour 2.
A place is selected if you see a label above its marker.
The Layers Tool automatically selects the starred places on a layer.
The List Tool automatically selects the places which you check. The Views tool
only shows and hides markers, except for My Tour 1 and My Tour 2. They will show the selected places
which were previously saved.
A maximum of 4 places can be selected at any given time. After that, the selections will change on a
first-in first-out basis: the fifth place selected will unselect the first place,
the sixth place selected will unselect the second and so on. The map will always show the last 4 selected places.
My Tour 1 and My Tour 2, found on the Views tool, save the current zoom, map center, and
selected places (a maximum of 4).
So before saving, pan and zoom the map until you can see all the selected places in the window.
Showing a tour will unselect any places which were selected by other tools. To hide the tour, tap any "hide" button.
As you zoom in or out, either by pinching, stretching, or by using the +/- buttons, you will notice the
Map Scale situated just above the toolbar change in number and size.
This is handy for knowing how far it is to walk from place to place.
Tap the number to change the scale from meters to feet and back again.
Cultural Maps connect people to cultural and historical places
in ways that heighten their experience whether they visit online or in person.
They enable a visitor to discover the character, values, and identity of a community.
