To educate and engage students and tourists in the history of "Our Town" Peterborough 1886. Essentially, as out tagline says, "A New Way to View the Past!"
The Apostolic Twelve were a group of twelve everyday citizens of Peterborough. In 1876 a local photographer, in an attempt to promote his business, took photographs of twelve individuals in Peterborough. These individuals were not chosen for their prominence but chosen as a random selection. Those photographs have been included in the game and help guide the user through the town and teach you along the way.
The Apostolic Twelve are the most prominent group in the game, although there are certain special guests like President Grover Cleveland, Frederick Douglass, and other members from out town's history. They were chosen to help contextualize the games information, for instance to inform people of what was happening in history in other parts of the United States during this time period.
