Three painting by Norman Rockwell
The first painting is called A family tree, which is painted in 1959. That painting is about the origin of American in new century. There is a big tree in the middle of the painting, and there leaves and also leaves on each branches of the tree. But, interestingly, no roots exist in the bottom of the trees and on the left corner of the article, there is a little ship sailing towards the land of the earth where the tree is planted. And all this things has their special meaning and history.
On the very bottom or near the earth, a man with an eye mask wearing a hat ,obviously a pirate, and a lady looks like a princess are the ancestor of the little boy on the top, they are actually came from Spain or England by sailing. And this is why this tree is no roots, because the land, North America is not where the ancestor came from or just not their roots. After that, it is the confederate and union soldiers and their some ladies also just migrate from Europe.
In this painting we should also pay attention to a lady, a Native American or an indian, with two plaids. A history that hides behind the prosperous economics in America should be mentioned here, actually many native America were killed by the Europeans on what have become the American soil. There are many massscre recorded, and there is some satistics show that there were 100,000-500,000 Native American in have died since 1776. In Semionle Wars I, II, & III, there were likely high as 10,000 indian people killed. So I think that people now are living in US should really thankful and respectful for the people who lost their lives for the construction of the civilization of the American.
From the painting, we could see that the family of a American is very diverse, their many have many different bloodline, they may have a father have a ancestry of Indian, European, Mexican and some place from the south American.
The second word is about a very important festival in the US,...
