That's a weird bit of trivia. Apparently the stereoscopes were all the rage during the civil war and a lot of those 3-D pictures were sent home as souvenirs. Considering how many seemed to be of piles of bodies, I can't see how having it in 3-D enhanced it. Still it is amazing to think they have been recreated as View-Master disks.
