Fort Sumter, Abraham Lincoln and other iconic figures from the Civil War, and the devastation of war. See the Civil War jump off the screen in “Civil War in 3D,” the SC Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum’s latest exhibit. Opening June 22, the exhibit features a nearly 30-minute revolving 3D show of over seventy-five stereographs. The show, featuring an original soundtrack with sound effects, brings to life each image and offers a unique look at America’s most defining moment in history. Viewing stereographs with a stereoscope creates a unique 3D effect and it was a popular amusement in America from the 1860s through the 1930s. This exhibit combines 3D stereograph viewing with modern technology to display the collection of Civil War stereographs. Each stereograph has been digitally processed to display in the originally-intended format, but in a theater setting. The exhibit also includes a stereoscope and several stereographs. “Civil War in 3D” is the third in a series of exhibits the museum is presenting during the Civil War’s 150th anniversary.Visit the Confederate Relic Room website for information.
