Special Exhibit: We Can. . .We Will. . .We Must! Allied Propaganda of WWII
On View November 27, 2013 Through February 16, 2014
“We Can Do It,” “Loose Lips Sink Ships,” and “I Want You” (accompanied by a pointing Uncle Sam) are sayings that have become ingrained on the American consciousness. These and others were part of propaganda campaigns used during WWII to unite the American people towards a common cause.
The National WWII Museum is currently exhibiting some of the most famous propaganda posters from the era along with more obscure works, Home Front Artifacts, newsreels and more as part of the special exhibit We Can. . .We Will. . .We Must! Allied Propaganda of WWII. The exhibit not only highlights the physical works of propaganda during wartime, it also explores how these slogans and images were created and how specific tools and devices were utilized to elicit a response.
