Photo of the Day

This image provided by The Library of Congress shows the crowd at the Baltimore train depot before the funeral procession for President Abraham Lincoln arrived in 1865. Rare Civil War-era stereoscopic have been acquired by the library from collector Robin Stanford. The images include a set of very rare photos of pre-Civil War slave life on a South Carolina plantation, images from Fort Sumter just after it was seized by the Confederates in April 1861 and ones from Lincoln's funeral procession in various cities. Stereoscopic photography creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth from two similar two-dimensional photographs taken next to each other. (AP Photo/Library of Congress)
