The History Of the World, Told In Instagram

The History Of the World, Told In Instagram

Have you ever wondered what world leaders' selifies would look like? What about travel photos by the greatest explorers to walk the Earth and moon?

That's what Histagrams is for. The entertaining site (which is, ironically, a Tumblr) envisions history, and the conversations surrounding it, through cell phone snapshots. Gawk at Charles Darwin's formidable beard, take a sneak peek into Saddam Hussein's new digs, and celebrate Rosa Parks telling the world #idgaf.

Here are 20 of history's most memorable moments, told in Instagram.
