WW1 Wars,Religion ,Etc

jasfindMarch 21, 2012

Hi. The "real"people of the USA ,didn't want WW1. But the powers that be said,GO.Hollywood's early days cranked out "Go get 'em boys" movies to built up going to war. I find these posters interesting for their religious backing of the war.Kinda "God's on our side" thing( thanks mr. Dylan).

Now ,I did my part for our uncle Sam. So don't think I'm preching.

Any thoughts

Hi. I sent this to Lindac
Hi Lindac. Well sorry ,I'm not quite that old. I trust that you hear read up on WW!. We were a nation of isolationists.Do you really think someone in Kansas(or anyplace in the USA) really gave a dam about England,France,Germany et al.
There was barely newspaper in some small towns. No radio. Why would we care. Most of us just ran away from those countries.
Don't think that I don't see the need for that war. It started and it had to be stopped.My point was ,all of europe is/was religous.Still we kill

This is really off topic for the Antiques Forum. Perhaps you could take it to "Hot Topics" before someone complains and gets it cut by the powers that be. Won't be me, but inevitably someone tattles.

Propaganda posters are always interesting. Sometimes horrifying, but always kinda neat. If you got 'em, post 'em!

I remember many of them depicting the Kaiser as a threat, also the word HUN being used.
Anything like posters are so vulnerable to damage, mildew, fading. If you have originals in good shape protect them and keep out of direct sun, they can be valuable.

Don't forget the US didn't enter the war until the spring of 1917 and it was over in November of 1918.
