Civil War in Stereo

American Civil War Stereoscopic Views, 1861-1865Created by: PICRYL - Public Domain Media Search EngineDated: 1865
Fort Sumner - Fair Oaks, Virginia - 19th century Virginia.
During the Civil War, photographers produced thousands of stereoviews. Stereographs were popular during American Civil War. A single glass plate negative capture both images using a Stereo camera. Prints from these negatives were intended to be looked at with a special viewer called a stereoscope, which created a three-dimensional ("3-D") image.

This collection includes glass stereograph negatives, as well as stereograph card prints.
