WISTV.com reports that 3D technology may be the buzz in home entertainment systems and the box office, but it’s been around since the Civil War.

“Civil War in 3D” is the newest exhibit at the Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum in Columbia.  It features a slide show of more than 30 minutes of some of the most iconic images of the Civil War that seem to come alive in 3D.

“When you look at these images and you have your 3D glasses on, and the image is popping out at you, there’s a dimensionality there,” said Curator of History Kristina Johnson. “You almost feel like there’s a real person standing in front of you.”

From the bombardment of Fort Sumter to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, the story is told in pictures.
