American Photography

One of the most important things I took from this movie was the way photography changed how war was being reported to the general public.  When war is so far from home and news reports were nothing like they are now with up to the minute reporting, you could almost report any part of war you wanted and no one would really know they weren't getting the whole truth.  With photography being such growing part of reporting people were for the first time getting the full idea of war and what was going on around the world, they were able to stand up and fight for what they wanted which was to bring the soldiers home and end the war.
