Connecting imagery to tell history

Posted on January 19, 2009 by


I just stopped by Kevin’s Civil War Memory blog, and, in today’s post, with so little, he says so much. With only one word and a few images, he has put meaning to it all by posting them at the present time. Words and imagery in context = meaning as defined by the user/viewer.  An excellent post for reflection, not to mention, an excellent tool for classroom discussion.

No matter what some may think, it is electrifying to see how far we have come… and it is an interesting time in which to live as an historian. It is even more electrifying considering both the significance of today and what happens tomorrow. The two days being so close to each other seems quite incredible. It cannot be stated enough how significant tomorrow is in the history of this nation.
