Online Project - Discovering YOUR Place in History Since 1999
Louisiana Purchase Integrated Unit for Computer Technology & Art
“Every Picture Tells a Story”
The Louisiana Purchase is one of the most important events in U.S. history. All major newspapers and magazines covered this event. It is included in every major U.S. history book. It is and was a very big deal.
Cameras had not been invented at the time; so all “pictures” of this most important event were “done” by artists. In other words, artists created the images that people saw when they learned about the Louisiana Purchase. In fact, artists created the images YOU saw when learning about it.
In this integrated unit you will learn about the art and the artists who illustrated the Louisiana Purchase.
