For those interested in Civil War photography

alisandeSeptember 18, 2012

This site shows stereophonic pictures of locations where the Civil War was fought. If you click on THEN, you'll see a photograph taken at the same site during the war. Many show dead bodies (but the pictures are small). There are links at the bottom of the page to other Civil War photo sites.

All war is tragic, and every war we've fought in has taken a terrible toll. But the Civil War seems to be in a unique category. It's so hard to imagine Americans killing Americans.

Those are really interesting. Amazing how much is the same in those pictures.

Death and the Civil War is on American Experience on PBS (tonight for me). I have my DVR set to tape it, it looks very interesting. The sheer amount of deaths is astounding. That and the fact is they really don't know how many died.

Here is a link that might be useful: Death and the Civil War

That show looks good, Iowagirl. So do some of the ones listed below that can be watched online. Like the one about war letters.

I watched Death and the Civil war last night-fascinating though a bit unpleasant to think about.
