"Seeing the Elephant" - A 360° Movie Experience - Now Playing at Civil War Museum!

The Civil War Museum opened up a new exhibit that aims to immerse the public in the sights, sounds, and stories of the Civil War through the magic of 360-Degree Movie Technology.

"Seeing the Elephant" is the term Civil War soldiers used to say they saw battle. The new high-tech digital movie experience in "The Fiery Trial" exhibit at the Civil War Museum, will allow visitors a glimpse at the "Elephant." One of just a handful of venues nationwide using 360 degree movie technology, the Civil War Museum movie focuses on the personal experiences and accounts of citizen soldiers. Using letters, journals and diaries, the script follows several soldiers as they leave home and hearth, train with their troops, face battle together and ultimately deal with the consequences of war. "This poignant 10-minute film tells a story about the Civil War but it is also a tribute to all soldiers and veterans, as it tells the story of the ultimate life-changing experience of war, for the soldier and for the country," comments Dan Joyce, Museums Director.

Over 200 people, including actors, re-enactors, film crew, technical and historical advisers and Museum Staff, gathered at Old World Wisconsin for five days in June 2013 to film "Seeing the Elephant." The centerpiece of "The Fiery Trial" exhibit, the film gives visitors a historically authentic and accurate portrayal of Civil War battle, although not a specific, actual battle. Historical photos and special visual and sound effects augment the reenactment of battle. The Civil War Museum is grateful to nationally recognized broadcast journalist Bill Kurtis for lending his voice as narrator of the film.
