(Apr 1918 in bottom left corner) Would be flawless with out the Apr 1918 on bottom corner.)

The patriotism he displayed in the Spanish-American war was rekindled during WWI. He drew upon that fervor and his tremendous talent to create posters for the war effort. Among the most popular were his Red Cross and Navy images, both featuring the famous Christy Girl.
