In a memorable image directed towards public awareness, Flagg exhorts America – depicted as Columbia dozing in false security on a front-porch rocker – to rouse itself against the war’s threat to free civilization in Europe. One of the best and rarest of World War I posters.

As for me, this just seemed like an appropriate day to post this.
