LIFE America Revealed: Tracing Our History Beneath the Surface and Behind the Scenes

In America Revealed, LIFE's editors explain the subtleties of our country's history with stunning, often beautiful and constantly surprising photography. Its pictures present the generally invisible history of common folks, and of hidden aspects behind conventionally great events.
