Civil War Photography in 3-D

See the Civil War in a whole new way - in 3-D
Did you know that an estimated 70% of all Civil War documentary photographs were shot as "stereoviews" - the 19th Century equivalent of 3-D?  Our new photography special, in conjunction with the Center for Civil War Photography, will let you see Civil War photos as the photographers intended - in three dimensions.
