Not sure why I haven’t mentioned this one before but The Center for Civil War Photography is a great place to find photos about the Civil War.  There are numerous websites that offer images of the Civil War, but The Center for Civil War Photography is different in one way because they also offer 3D images.  I especially like the analysis of Gardner’s Harvest of Death.

So, go grab a set of your red&blue 3D glasses and explore some really cool photos of the Civil War (requires a special browser plugin).  If you don’t have them, you can always explore the regular photos.  These images provide an excellent way for students to examine different aspects of the Civil War in great detail.  As I always say, getting students to act like historians.
