This photograph of young farmers on their way to a dance was taken in Germany in 1914 by August Sander. Except they weren't farmers. And the dance they were on their way to was literal as well as figurative. Soon after they were all fighting in World War I. Guest host John Green delves into the real story behind this iconic photograph.
