Propaganda posters from World War I have very striking, sometimes disturbing designs and messages. Today’s audiences might laugh them off but at the time they were very successful at uniting the American home front to support the war. Check out some of my favorites from the Rice County Historical Society‘s collection here and also on the DHC:

Poster, “Can Vegetables Fruit and the Kaiser too,” 1918

Poster, “Remember! The Flag of Liberty Support It!” 1918

Poster, “Little Americans, Do your bit,” 1917 – 1918
