WHAT: We Can...We Will...We Must! Allied Propaganda Posters of WWII features some of the most famous propaganda posters from the era along with more obscure works, Home Front artifacts, newsreels and more. It not only highlights the physical works of propaganda during wartime, but also explores how these slogans and images were created and how specific tools and devices were utilized to elicit a response.
"We Can Do It," "Loose Lips Sink Ships" and "I Want You" (accompanied by a pointing Uncle Sam) are sayings that have become ingrained on the American consciousness. These and others were part of propaganda campaigns used during WWII to unite the American people towards a common cause.
