How we see the world

  1. 1. How we see the world
  2. 2. Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima is a historic photograph taken on February 23, 1945, by Joe Rosenthal. It depicts five United States Marines and a U.S. Navy corpsman raising the flag of the United States atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. This photograph was famous all over America, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt saw the photograph he ordered the surviving men of that photograph to return to the U.S to support the cause for the war. This is a powerful photograph in the way that it highlights victory and pride. This photo was taken 4 days into the battle and the battle raged on for another 26 days. Three out of the five men pictured died in battle after the photo was taken.
