Adelman Garry Adelman on:
“4D Civil War Photography Extravaganza“

Come join us this month for a “4D Civil War Photo Extravaganza” as Garry Adelman, co-founder and vice president of the Center for Civil War Photography, takes us on a photographic tour of the Civil War. Garry will pair photographs taken during the war with modern photographs, use 3D and even 4D techniques, and provide us with insights into the aims and methods of the photographers, thus revealing some interesting truths about the conflict.

Garry E. Adelman is the Director of History and Education for the Civil War Trust, and a licensed battlefield guide at Gettysburg. Garry earned a B.A. in business from Michigan State University and an M.A. in history at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania. He is the author, co-author or editor of many books, including Antietam in 3-D, Manassas Battlefields Then & Now, The Myth of Little Round Top and Devil’s Den: A History and Guide. He has published articles in The Gettysburg Magazine and Hallowed Ground, and drafted texts for wayside exhibits at the Slaughter Pen Farm, Third Winchester, Chancellorsville, and Mine Run battlefields. He has appeared as a speaker on BBC and C-SPAN, and was a chief consultant and talking head for the History Channel’s Emmy Award-winning show, “Gettysburg.” Garry’s knowledge and enthusiasm are immense.
