||Columbia Calls - Enlist Now for U.S. Army. Original, linen backed 30 x 40 format. Painted by V. Aderente this famous image of Columbia carrying the American Flag forward into war. Drapped in her white robe with the U.S. Flag flowing as she marches forward. Great addition to any collection.
color lithograph, copyright 1916, designed by Frances Adams Halsted, painted by Vincent Aderente. A wonderfully evocative poster featuring lady Columbia standing atop the world proudly holding the American flag in one hand and a sword in the other. Frances Halsted provides a six-stanza poem: "Awake! Ye men from dreams of Peace - Nor sleep when danger's near, But fling Old Glory to the breeze - There are no cowards here!..."
Rawls, p. 52.
Wonderfully patriotic Army recruiting poster, before US declared war. This has become very scarce.
