PATRIOTISM

Effective World War II posters rallied public support. The nationalistic fervor portrayed here rallied the nation's pride by recalling the uniqueness of the country's institutions and its great tradition of freedom and democracy-its flag, its enduring documents, its national monuments, its political heroes, and its historical heritage of fighting for liberty. These posters present America as a country worth fighting for.

Remember Dec. 7th!-we highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. Books cannot be killed-books are weapons in the war of ideas. Save freedom of worship. Save freedom of speech.

Ours to fight for-freedom from fear. Ours to fight for-freedom from want. No loyal citizen of the United States ...Americanism is not, and never was, a matter of race or ancestry.

Give it your best! The state of this nation is good...
