Thanks to everyone who rated my animation and allowed my to win the Daily Feature! You guys rock! And thank you Tom for putting me on the front page!
This wasn't meant to shock or dazzle with impressive animation, but rather to give you a brief glimpse into what has happened to the world over the the course of forty years (i.e. 1940's to 1980's). I made it for the final project in my college History Class, which I daresay got an A in.
I hope you guys like it.
Music: Billy Joel - We Didn't Start the Fire
It is also possible that in the future I will clean it up and replace most of the jpegs with drawings.
UPDATE: I understand that the book "A People's History of the United States" covers mostly American history, and yet "We Didn't Start the Fire" covers world history overall. The reason I put in the book was because it was the reading material for the class, so I hope that clarifies some disputes in the comments.
