World War I: The Great War
Dates: Sunday, August 19, 2018 08:00am - 05:00pm

World War I was considered the war to end all wars. The war brought technological advances on and off the battlefield and produced weapons that were deadlier than ever before. Developments in engineering, chemistry, and metalworking created unmerciful conditions and saw a transition from animal power to machine power as the primary means of victory. The techniques and knowledge in the field of medicine improved and adapted to the mass destruction of war. Outside the war zone, the home front proved to be a vital artery in the war effort through its sacrifices and undying support of patriotism. In all, ...

Embattled Emblems: Posters and Flags of the First World War

On the eve of World War I, President (and former Governor of New Jersey) Woodrow Wilson faced the difficult task of transforming the American people into a pro-war populace willing to make supreme sacrifices for the country. Replete with patriotic images and rhetoric, posters used the power of illustration art to raise money for the war effort and induce a changing American mindset towards war. Whereas posters formed a chief source of propaganda on the home front, military flags served a similar purpose on the battlefront. Once overseas, the American Expeditionary Force used the patriotic form of the flag – a ...
