In early January 1942, as the homefront became mobilized for war, posters and signs quickly began appearing across the United States. One of the earliest of the poster maker's art was the "Remember Dec. 7th!" poster shown here in miniature. It was created during the dark days soon after the attack on Pearl Harbor. It is interesting to note that the first such poster's rallying cry dealt with the theme of "Dec 7th". As the war continued; however, and as public awareness increased, it became "Remember Pearl Harbor".
