At the outset of America’s involvement in World War I, art and illustration were the primary modes of mass communication. This exhibit at the National Museum of American History showcases works that were used to inspire patriotism, enrollment in military forces, rationing and charity work. Visitors will be able to view what the America of the time looked like, from the new roles of women to new technologies.
