    Earlier this week, Apple started removing games from the apple App store "because they include images of the Confederate flag used in offensive and mean-spirited ways." Yesterday, the developer of the critically acclaimed Civil War game Ultimate General: Gettysburg announced that it was allowed back in the the App Store.

    "Ultimate General is back! Unchanged," developer Games-Lab said on its official website. "After several late night phone calls with Apple yesterday and today the game has returned to AppStore the way it was... in 1863."

    Though Apple originally said it would only remove apps from the store that used the Confederate flag in an offensive ways, even games about the Civil War that included it to be historically accurate were removed.

    "We accept Apple's decision and understand that this is a sensitive issue for the American Nation," Games-Lab said after its game was removed. "We wanted our game to be the most accurate, historical, playable reference of the Battle of Gettysburg."
