Museum After Hours: For Home and Country: World War I Propaganda on the American Home Front

11/7/2018 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO

World War I propaganda was massive in scope, targeting women and children on the home front, pressuring them to contribute to the war effort. When women and children were not the target of propaganda, their images were used to encourage men to enlist. Cookbooks, pamphlets, posters, sheet music and children’s literature all served as recruiting tools to bring every American citizen into the war effort. Celia Kingsbury, Ph.D., University of Central Missouri, will present. 

The program continues the museum's ongoing series, "Museum After Hours," held the first Wednesday of each month.

The program will be held at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site.

Event time: 7 p.m.
Location: Jefferson Landing State Historic Site, 101 Jefferson Street
First Floor, State Capitol, 201 W. Capitol, Jefferson City, MO | (573) 751-2854
