This temporary exhibit will feature over 60 posters from WWI, WWII and the Cold War used by government and commercial agencies as a way to mobilize America for war. Their messages were straightforward and simple, reinforced by colorful and powerful imagery. These posters related to people of all ages and backgrounds, encouraging their support on the home front. War bond drives were heavily advertised, and recruitment posters enticed future service members. Click on the posters for more information.
