Weekly Showcase #1

Hey guys! This is your host, Eve Winters, and this week I wanted to focus on reveling in the past. There is so much history in this great country and I find it fascinating to look back on.

American Timeline

This is why I will be highlighting the best works from the daily create that we had on Friday, October 16th, 2015. Our timeline starts in the 1860s with the Civil War. This time period was submitted by Miles Davis.

I liked that Miles tied in our school to the era as well. It really brings out the significance of the time period and how it affects us today. Our next time period on our timeline is from the 1870s to the 1900s with the Gilded Age. This time period was submitted by Glen Cochrane.

The picture that Glen chose was beautiful and captured the essence of the Gilded Age, the introduction of new things that brought large groups of people together. The next time period in our timeline is the 1940s with World War II. This time period was submitted by Jerome Mueller.

Jerome’s background story is unbelievably realistic and truly brings you into the time period. The picture he includes is hilarious but, along with the background story, shows how much work was put into this hoax. Our next time period is from the 1940s to the 1950s with the prime time of Rock and Roll. This time period was submitted by We’reAllInsaneHere.

I loved this submission because Elvis is a true symbol of Rock and Roll and this time period (excuse the pun) ROCKED!!!! I’m not kidding though, this time period put America above all other countries in the world. Our final time period is the 1990s. This time period was submitted by Caleb Snow.

This submission was super cool since I was born in the 1990s and don’t remember much of the fashion from back then. But if you think about it, without this crazy fashion time we wouldn’t have the awesome fashion trends that we have now. This rounds out my timeline for this week. I hope you all enjoyed going back in time with me and keep up the good work everybody.
