WWI Posters and Propaganda

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Join Mariners’ Museum archivist Bill Barker as he examines World War I era posters from the Mariners’ Museum collection. These pieces of propaganda played an important role in galvanizing public opinion and shoring up support for the war effort. Learn how this pairing of pithy phrases and dramatic artwork elicited such a strong reaction from the public and significantly impacted how the country thought about war. Bring a bag lunch—we’ll have free dessert for you!
