THE ART OF PERSUASION: MOBILIZING THE MASSES IN WWI


We are mobilizing the nation as well as creating an Army, and that
means we must keep every instrumentality at its highest pitch
of efficiency and guided by thoughtful intelligence.


-President Woodrow Wilson, April 9, 1917

 
To begin the observance of the World War I Centennial, the Wisconsin
Veterans Museum unveils the first of our two exhibit series focusing
on the Great War — The Art of Persuasion: Mobilizing the Masses in WWI.

We invite you to explore our collection of wartime propaganda posters
and to consider how our nation prepared for World War I.

The Art of Persuasion: Mobilizing the Masses in WWI
will be on exhibit until March 2017.

The Wisconsin Veterans Museum is an educational activity of the
