Behind the Stonewall

Welcome to my unique exhibit of modern day images from battlefields of the American Civil War.  Over 2500 individual snapshots were stitched together using Live Pictures Photovista to bring these 105 spinning 360 degree panoramic images here for your viewing pleasure.  

I would like to thank the National Parks Service for providing some of the maps as public domain and making them available on the web.

WHAT'S NEW :  Well, we have been moved to another server, so all of the counters have been reset.  The site has attracted 122,000 visits in two years!  Thank you everyone! 

Also on a side note - you can visit the site is a play site for me and has some panoramas from my trip to Scotland and a view inside from the former Three Rivers Stadium.  I personally like the the panoramas  from St. Andrews Golf Course and one inside the Standing Stones on The Isle of Lewis (kind of ignored the signs for that shot - and they are older than Stonehenge)

This weekend I put the pictures of Chickamauga taken last spring together - adding 13 new panoramas of that battlefield - and will also be fixing the pages shortly.

A group of the NEW PANORAMAS ARE UP!  Under Construction, but Up!!  These shots are from Andersonville Ga., Perryville Ky.,  Shiloh Tn.

We also have some new descriptions by by William G. Davis up in the Gettysburg Battlefield Section that are very interesting. 

WORK IN PROGRESS - For Christmas, Santa has found a copy of "Soldier's Boy Diary Book" by Adam S. Johnston.  I will be transcribing this work to preserve its existence into the next century.  It has been an exciting find for it follows the footsteps of Company D of the 79th Pennsylvania which my Great, Great Grandfather was a member of.

Please select from one of the following battlefields to visit:

"We must never forget what they did here"

The men who fought here and died here during the years 1861-1865 deserve all of the credit for what you see here.  My only goal is to make these battlefield images accessible for everyone to enjoy.
