Yet, like all documentary materials, images of the past carry contextual information which, after careful analysis, may reveal as much about the past as the evidence presented to our eyes. The goals of this lesson plan are to examine American attitudes toward war as revealed in Civil War photographs and World War II home front posters; to explore ways in which the experience of war has helped shape the American social and cultural identity; to gain experience interpreting archival images; to organize a statement of findings
