A rendition of the 1818 painting known as Declaration of Independence features on the reverse of $2 United States Marines Legal Tender Notes.

Members of Congress are shown in the background observing the event.
The image by Joe Rosenthal of six Marines raising a flag atop Mount Suribachi is considered an American masterpiece. However, Rosenthal barely captured the moment. The photographer had climbed to the summit to capture the scene and decided to build a pile of rocks for a better viewpoint. This proved unwise, as the Marines had already begun to hoist the flag. Rosenthal was forced to swing up his camera and blindly take a shot without even using the viewfinder. Miraculously, the composition was nearly flawless.
