Like the Lange's Iconic Photograph assessment, this question asks students to engage in sourcing, contextualization, and corroboration. To answer this assessment, students must consider various aspects of the photograph's reliability and also think about other information that could help them evaluate the reliability of the image. In Question 1, students must explain that Girdwood was trying to win the support of Indians for the war, and as a result, may have chosen to depict the medical care at the Dome Hospital in a positive light while ignoring evidence to the contrary. In Question 2, students must identify other relevant information that would help them evaluate the reliability of this image and justify their reasoning.
