American time capsule

November 21st, 2011 by martinvukaj · No Comments · Uncategorized

Smothers brothers have shown us a montage, american time capsule by chuck braverman, a collection of pictures and images encompassing over 2 centuries of American History up until president nixon. In short, these images provide us, the viewer, a look at some of the united states most major events starting with george washington and continuing on to events thru these years like the Civil War, President Roosevelt, WWII, and ending with the face of Pres Nixon. These images provide viewers with a glimpse at our nations history, but not all of the US major events were on the montage. Images and pictures from WWI and the Depression were just some of the events omitted. These are just two examples of important events in the US history, along with the fight for womens rights as well.  so the question i choose to ponder is: which event not shown in the montage had the greatest cultural impact on the US and why?
