Title: Americans Will Always
Fight For Liberty
Comments: This is one of my favorite images and
themes. World War II soldiers with an American Flag patch on their arm are
seen marching, eyes right, looking at massed Revolutionary War soldiers.
The text identifies the years 1778 and 1943 and gives the cause of their
fighting: "Americans will always fight for liberty." This is
the only war poster that visually associates the WW2 war effort with the
American Revolution. This poster was issued by the U.S. Office of War
Information. A larger format version was also issued.
