Description

Liberty Bonds Poster ''BEAT BACK THE HUN WITH LIBERTY BONDS'', by Frederick Strothmann, 17 1/2'' x 27 1/2'', framed, this was one of many posters issued by the U.S. government during World War I to encourage support of the war. This poster shows a bestial and massive German soldier; his head and shoulders looming over a war-stricken landscape. He holds a rifle with a bloody smeared bayonet in his right hand and his left hand resting on a ruined building with bloody fingers. The caption, ''Beat Back the HUN with LIBERTY BONDS'' capitalized on the fear of Americans and encouraged them to buy liberty bonds to finance the war. Liberty Loans were bonds that the Government sold so they could keep up with the expenses of war. These were sold back to the Government after the war. The word ''Hun'' is a derogatory word towards the Germans that derives from the nomadic tribe, the Huns, in the 4th and 6th century AD, known for their barbaric and warlike invasions, has a few tears & age cracks. Circa 1918. Grade: Very Good ++ - Value: 200 to 1000
