The Center for Civil War Photograhy 

The Center for Civil War Photography was founded in 1999 and since then has become one of the leading resources for Civil War photography.  The Mission of the Center is:

•       To educate the public about Civil War photography, its role in the conflict, and its rich variety of forms and formats;
•       To digitally secure original images and preserve vintage prints;
•       To enhance the accessibility of photographs to the public;
•       To present interpretive programs that use stereoscopic and standard images to their fullest potential.

The Center is a non-profit organization; our members receive discounts to our annual Image of War seminar and also receive our newsletters.  The CCWP has produced 3-D presentations running in museums throughout the country.  Here is a brief sample of one of our anaglyph 3-D shows:
