Fighting in France for Freedom! Are You Helping at Home? - Connecticut State Council of Defense

Artist Unknown

Text: Fighting in France for Freedom!--Are YOU Helping at Home? - Wild and enthusiastic times marked the victory day's celebration all over the country. Every city vied in having celebrations on Monday when hostilities ceased and it was one joyful day in every place in the United States. New York was a pandemonium of joy and everybody knows they celebrate with a vengeance. Photograph shows one instance of the crowds which Mayor Hyland addressed. - THE TRAILS OF "OUR BOYS" WON'T CEASE WITH PEACE. - When the fighting ends, American soldiers will have to be kept in France a long time. Without the excitement of battle they'll be more homesick and restless than ever before. An that's why every man and every woman must contribute to the United War Work Fund. - IS ANYTHING TOO MUCH?

Child Run Over

Käthe Kollwitz

In the foreground, a man and a woman carry a child as they move to the left of the page. The man carries the child's body, while the woman holds the childs head. The man's face is turned towards the left, while the woman's head is bowed toward the child. The man and woman are dressed in dark clothes, while the child is shown in white. The child's arm hangs limp. A crowd of children is gathered in the background, looking at the three main figures.

Y.M.C.A. United War Work Campaign - Pershing

Samuel Johnson Woolf

Text: YMCA - Cabled From France August 21st, 1918 - "A sense of obligation for the varied and useful service rendered to the army in France by the Y.M.C.A. prompts me to join in the appeal for its further financial support. I have opportunity to observe its operations, measure the quality of its personnel and mark its beneficial influence upon our troops, and I wish unreservedly to commend its work for the Army." - Pershing - United War Work Campaign - November 11-18, 1918
