About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Half a stereo pair

I agree with you. I would like to recommend to you The Civil War In Depth by Bob Zeller. Many of the images seen here as complete stereo pairs, with a stereo viewer.. really a fun book

Last Full Measure

Awesome book, might I add! Hopefully we'll be able to see it made into a film like its two companion pieces, but it looks like the process is taking painfully long.


May I ask....what is the LOC site?

[Library of Congress. - Dave]


Is there anything quite as frustrating as the phrase "Half of a stereo pair"?

Well y'know, the other half looks pretty much just like this one. You can find it (and thousands of other complete stereo pairs) on the LOC site. - Dave
