Pennsylvania State Archives Poster Collections Available Online
The Pennsylvania State Archives, in collaboration with the State Library of Pennsylvania, digitized World War I posters from Manuscript Group 200 Poster Collection (MG 200) and Manuscript Group 272 Pennsylvania Military Museum Collections (MG 272). The World War I poster collection is available online and consists of 462 illustrated posters. The posters helped to fan the fires of patriotism throughout the United States during the Great War, and to arouse the American fighting spirit and the will to sacrifice on the home front. An additional 386 digital images from our general poster collection have also been created which include items from 1854 to the present.
