Roots Of Knowledge Panel T1


The mid-1800s was a period of immense change. The Industrial Revolution was in full swing, Western empires were on the rise, slavery and serfdom were abolished, and large steps were made in science and medicine. At center is the Emancipation Proclamation, issued by President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. The bottom-left corner makes references to such writers as Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Lewis Carroll, while the opposite side recognizes the scientists Dmitri Mendeleev, Charles Darwin, and Gregor Mendel.
