Inspiring a Nation: Posters from the Homefront during WWI
The iconic poster of Uncle Sam pointing his finger and proclaiming, “I Want You!” is one of the seminal propaganda posters used during World War I and World War II. Though this one is most recognized, there were thousands of other posters used to challenge U.S. citizens to uphold their duty and enlist for combat, to buy war bonds, to conserve vital resources, and to make sacrifices for the war effort. On Saturday, March 1, 2014, the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, wants you to join us for a lecture exploring those posters entitled, “Inspiring a Nation: Posters from the Homefront during WWI,” presented by the USAHEC Art Curator, Jim McNally, at 10 AM.
