"For Home and Country" 1918 WW1 Orig Poster Alfred Orr American Lithographic Co. "For Home and Country” was one of many posters issued by the United States government during World War I to encourage support of the war. During WWI, the U.S. government needed money to pay for tanks, ammunition, airplanes, and ships to fight the war. The government found funding through civilians by means of war bonds or Liberty Loans. This was a very effective way of receiving large amounts of money quickly. The poster encouraged the viewer to purchase a Liberty Loan to support the soldiers and end the war. These were sold back to the government after the war. The poster depicts a soldier with his wife and son. The son is smiling and happy to see his father, while the wife admires the medal on the soldier's uniform. This imagery was used to convince civilians to buy war bonds so their families could come back together. The poster was also telling people that by buying bonds they were supporting the men overseas. This poster was commissioned by the U.S. government from Alfred Everitt Orr, an American artist known for his work in California. This poster was created by American Lithographic Co NY 1918. I have had this poster in plastic for over 20 years. It does not appear ever to have been folded. There is some light wear and a fold and tear in the top right. Great colors for being over 100 years old. I have had this for over 20 years and have never taken it out of the protective backing board. Check out my other WW1 poster. I have other toys and advertising for sale on Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. If interested please enter dave rave into the central jersey search bar to see it all. Also, I have more advertising etc on Icollect247.com under ID: Great Garloo Toys Mishmash and Hodgepodge. Please ask any questions that you may have via email or text. Unlike Ebay or auctions I charge no tax, shipping charge or buyers premium for Craigslist or Facebook purchases that are picked up or handed off. Thank you, Dave
