Support the war!

1917

American artist Howard Chandler Christy created this poster for the Third Liberty Loan war bond drive during World War I. Published in 1917 by Forbes of Boston, the poster shows “America” waving a flag encouraging Americans to help with the war effort by joining the military or purchasing bonds to finance the war. Christy, one of the best-known artists in America before the war, created many World War I posters.
