Image Analysis

Image analyses are designed to encourage you to think like a historian, describing, interpreting, and placing these images in their broader historical context.

Let's practice with an image from Friday's lecture.

Questions: How does this image represent the Freedmen's perspective? The perspective of the White Southerner? The perspective of the Northern Republicans?

How does this image explain the end of Reconstruction?

Now, can you identify the historical context of this image?

Any trouble?
