Our America: A Photographic History by Ken Burns

Ken Burns is renowned for making some of the best-known, most-beloved, and most insightful documentaries, including many following the progression of American history over the last 40+ years. Now, in the pages of Our America: A Photographic History, he shares his deep knowledge of America’s soul through images that best embody our country’s progression, from its founding over 200 years ago to modern-day society.

Featuring striking images of civil war and stirring tributes to great people who changed the country, it’s a visual journey through the moments and events that made America what it is today—entirely raw and unfiltered truth through the lens of a camera.
