Museum Exhibits

Do Your Part! - World War I Poster Art

 a new exhibition opening at the New York State Military Museum on July 5, showcases the variety of patriotic and motivational posters created 100 years ago during the Great War.  After the US entered the conflict in 1917, the federal government effectively created dozens of motivational posters urging its citizens to support the war effort.  Dramatic posters urged citizens to buy war bonds, join the military, save starving European refugees and donate money to charitable groups including the Red Cross, Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) and Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA).  

The exhibition features a variety of personal items worn and used by the US Army servicemen such as a Campaign hat, Overseas cap and ID disks. Also showcased in the exhibition are items sent to the Doughboy including a Red Cross supplied razor and small shaving mirror.
