Composite Then and Now Photos of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake

Composite Then and Now Photos of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake | United States History | Scoop.it
"Since 2010, San Francisco photographer Shawn Clover has been working on a striking series of then and now composite photos of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. To create the series, Clover collected archival photos of the earthquake’s aftermath. He then replicated the photos himself, down to the location, camera position and focal length (to the best of his estimation). The resulting composite photos hauntingly combine stark images of the earthquake’s devastation with modern scenes of life in San Francisco."

150 years after Lincoln at Gettysburg… Can we maintain our resolve? Our Union?

150 years after Lincoln at Gettysburg… Can we maintain our resolve? Our Union? | United States History | Scoop.it
America's sense of resolution is currently at stake, as we confront the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address -- widely considered to be the most impactful speech -- (certainly on a per-word basis) -- in the last several centuries. Greatly noted and long remembered, it has been compared by some (including myself) to the inspiring "funeral oration" of the great Athenian leader, Pericles. (As conveyed to us by Thucydides.) Only with this vital difference. Both men died before completing their tasks. But, unlike those who followed Pericles, we appear to have been ready, after Lincoln, to forge ahead in victory and determination. His words, burning in our hearts, continued making a difference at crucial moments for six succeeding generations, so that the Great Experiment thrived and survived every intervening crisis.
