New MSU Museum Exhibit Opening  (Exhibits (Museum, Gardens, ...))

War and Speech: Propaganda, Patriotism and Dissent in the Great War explores, through the MSU Museum's extensive World War I poster and militaria collections, the new ways in which Americans understood civic duty and used civic speech. At the same time, women, African Americans, Native Americans and immigrants-not all of whom were full participants in the American body politic-were encouraged to enlist in the cause.

Propaganda posters produced by the United States government, by commercial lithographers and by average citizens, created a new, modern way of signifying patriotism and the American people. War and Speech provides a window to that moment, framing Americans' ideas about nation and citizenship in this critical historic era.
