The Center for Civil War Photography Features 3D Images

The Center for Civil War Photography is a great place to find photo essays about the US Civil War. A lot of websites offer images of the Civil War, but what makes The Center for Civil War Photography different is that they offer 3D images in their photo essays about the Civil War. Of course, to view the images in 3D you'll need a pair of cheap 3D glasses, but otherwise you can access the content for free. If you can't get ahold of some 3D glasses, don't worry because The Center for Civil War Photography has some nice photo essays that don't include 3D images.

You can get some cheap 3D glasses from Amazon.

Applications for Education
The Center for Civil War Photography's 3D images provide a good way for students to examine records of the Civil War in more detail than before. One of my classes is currently working on a visual history of the Civil War project (I'll blog about it next week), these images could bring a new engaging element to their research.
