Slave quarters on a plantation, possibly in Beaufort, South Carolina. The photograph is by Mathew Brady and has a copyright date of 1862.
Here are some 3D images of the Civil War. I created these from stereo cards, some of which were in my own collection but most of which were from the Library of Congress’ collection. In order to view these, you’ll need a pair of red-cyan 3-D glasses. You may already have a pair, or if not you can find some inexpensive 3D glasses on Amazon.com. Note that, being up to 150 years old, some of the images are not perfect. Enjoy!
If you’re interested in seeing more such images, please leave a comment and let us know. Thanks!
The Shaw Memorial is located in Boston Common. It is a beautiful monument that commemorates Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, commanding officer of the Massachusetts 54th Colored Regiment, and the officers and troops of the regiment. Shaw is depicted on horseback; black soldiers are depicted in three rows of bas relief, giving an illusion of depth. Above them all is an angel of death and the words “omnia relinquit servare rempublicam”, loosely translated “he gave everything to preserve the republic.”
