Thank you Andy!!..this day just keeps getting better and better
It's very easy software to use, once you get the hang of it.

"Artillery post inside the fort at Port Hudson facing the river after the siege in 1863." LoC image.
Early British stereoview of a cat, circa 1860.
Artillery Park, Broadway Landing, Appomattox River. LoC image.
"Interior view of ginning mills ginning sea island cotton, on Alex. Knox's plantation, Mount Pleasant, near Charleston, S.C."
I don't think I've seen a photo of a hand-powered gin before. LoC image.
"Richmond, Va., April 1865, the Belle Isle railroad bridge (covered) from the south bank." LoC image.
Great Photo... Content Cat....we had a cat about the same colorization..but sadly had to put him down at the age 0f 19
Is the first photo that one where the tall man with the top head is supposed to be Lincoln coming from Gettysburg where he had delivered the “Gettysburg Address“?
Interior of Fort Sumter, 1861. LoC image.
Lincoln passed through Hannover Junction en route to Gettysburg, and these were taken about that time, but I don't know of any real evidence that he appears in the images taken there. LoC has several different images from that time:
This may be the image you're thinking of. I don't think it's Lincoln, and the LoC captioning doesn't mention it.
The 3D stereo images are a favorite of mine. My original website http://www.civilwarin3d.com is devoted to these type of images. We offer them as reproduction stereo cards as well as for the PC on DVD. Currently we are offering 2 DVD's. One with 683 images from the Library of Congress that are setup as red/cyan anaglyph images here and as 100 colorized images here.
The cover for the color one is even an anaglyph. If you use your red/cyan glasses you should be able to see this one in 3D.
Photograph shows three members of Company C of the 18th Regiment Infantry of the National Guard of Pennsylvania, the Duquesne Greys, seated outside of a tent which is labeled, "The Three Angels."
Very well done!
A French “Bourbonnais” steam locomotive, c. 1858. I'm not sure if the name refers to the historic region in central France, or is the name of builder, or perhaps the name of that specific locomotive.
It's not an ACW image, but it's a remarkably clear picture of an unusual subject. The 3D effect is so pronounced that I believe the photographer used lenses set farther apart than the four- to five inches common in American examples. From here.
I too have a pair of those glasses which I got from "Civilwarincolor" when he made a presentation before my Civil War Roundtable Group. Yes, they do make me feel queasy after awhile. BTW, here is our website which I run for the group: http://www.civilwarriors-wsfv-ca.org/
Great ways to see these photos. I don't have a problem with them. 4 Sam Adams and come right into focus.
