History Paintings

History is one of the most important things to create a social context for observing the present and future, from cultural history like photographs of important moments in sports to photographs of important people through history. Displays of cultural posters during wartime, like the famous 'Uncle Sam Wants You' and to the 'We Can Do It', well-known America posters from World War II, can create an atmosphere of historical knowledge and awareness in the history of the democratic nation.

Other moments of patriotic or trying times - photographs of wartime like firefighters around Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks and aircraft in black and white flying overhead during World War II - will create the environment and capacity for learning new knowledge and observing the world with the right sort of context; granted by paintings of historical moments, educators, parents and history buffs can enjoy this context or use it to teach prospective historians.

Placing these photographs and posters is only a matter of the room's context; they can create a patriotic feel in the right setting and an educational feel in another, able to ensure that passing minds learning history in the room have the information impressed upon them every time they glance over and take a peek at what was once the present, whether they gaze upon photographs of wartime or important people.
