The Center for Civil War Photography was founded in 1999 and since then has become one of the leading resources for Civil War photography. The Mission of the Center is:
To educate the public about Civil War photography, its role in the conflict, and its rich variety of forms and formats;
To digitally secure original images and preserve vintage prints;
To enhance the accessibility of photographs to the public;
To present interpretive programs that use stereoscopic and standard images to their fullest potential.
The Center is a non-profit organization; our members receive discounts to our annual Image of War seminar and also receive our newsletters. The CCWP has produced 3-D presentations running in museums throughout the country.
