1846 : portrait of the nation by Margaret C. S Christman( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1846 America, a young, vibrant republic, was expanding in directions unimagined only a few years earlier. The nation plunged into war with Mexico and rushed to settle the West. The country saw the steady rise of cities, the expansion of the railroad, and the emergence of great works of literature and art. On August 10 of that year, in an act that embodied the country's buoyant mood, Congress accepted the bequest of Englishman James Smithson and established an institution dedicated to the "increase and diffusion of knowledge." Marking the Smithsonian Institution's 150th anniversary, 1846 evokes the texture of American daily life, thought, and politics during a single influential year. In a narrative accompanied by nearly two hundred illustrations, Margaret Christman revisits a capital dominated by Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun, and James K. Polk and follows the westward journeys of Brigham Young, Francis Parkman, and the ill-fated Donner party. Moving from the Transcendentalists to the Hudson River School, from Gothic Revival architecture to anesthesia and the sewing machine, Christman chronicles as well the antislavery movement and other social-reform campaigns that expanded the nation's conscience and changed its future

"Roy E. Stryker headed the Historical Division of the Farm Security Administration from 1935 to 1943. He was responsible for leading a group of photographers that documented a troubling and courageous time in America"--Title screens. "This program tells the story of how Stryker, a low-level federal bureaucrat with integrity and vision, managed a massive New Deal project to document the Great Depression. These photos -- nearly 200,000 by both established and aspiring photographers, including Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Arthur Rothstein, and many others -- became the defining statement of the era." -- Container
