Description:
 When the United States entered the First World War (known then as the Great War), the conflict had already raged in Europe for over two years. Millions of Americans doubted the wisdom of President Wilson’s decision to send American troops “over there.” In fact, one government official stated that the war would not be won on the battlefield, but rather in the hearts and minds of the American people. To accomplish this, the Wilson Administration commissioned artists to produce propaganda posters that would “sell” the war to the American public. Posters encouraged people to enlist, conserve, work, purchase “Liberty Bonds,” care for the wounded, and remember who our enemies were. Local historian, Bob Frenz, will bring some of his original World War One posters to share with us on May 18th.
