    Must ask you about the 3rd set. It's a neat little trick with making it 3-D without the stereo-glasses and yeah they have the red/blue versions. My question is... when clicking on the stereo pics, you can see noticeable damage to the "second one" so would it mean that the first one was digitally restored? I'm guessing that they are, I mean acid paper, fading emulsions and all that old film stuff wasn't designed to last forever.
    Again I guess I must say that we should be grateful for the technology to preserve our past so that future generations can have the same knowledge.

    I do recall reading that a lot (photos) of the aftermath of Gettysburg were set up. The photographer dragged this body over to that spot and that body over to this spot and set it up. But the carnage was still evident. Either way that particular fact cannot take away that such a grim 3 days actually took place.
