1945 - F.D. Roosevelt had died. Ed Clark drove to cover the news but found swarms of photographers trying to get the best view of FDR's coffin. Clark heard one of Roosevelt's favorite hymns Goin'Home being played on an accordion. He snapped a shot of Navy bandsman Gordon Jackson with tears streaming down his face as he played. No one else had seen what Clark had seen, and his dramatic photograph became the symbol of a nation in grief. This photo took up an entire page in the next issue of LIFE.
