Summary "'A photograph is worth a thousand words' has never been more fitting than in this thought-provoking title! Photographs serve as snapshots of time, capturing the emotions, humanity, and history of a specific moment. Since the camera's invention, photographs have captured pivotal moments that defined and shaped American history. This book for young readers features a variety of photographs for readers to examine as primary sources. Readers will investigate the context of each photograph for a deeper look at America throughout the years. Review photographs of Rosa Parks's arrest in Montgomery, a jubilant kiss at the end of World War II--and more!"--Provided by publisher.
