Biography / History

Liberty Loans were sold as a way to raise money to cover the expenses incurred by America's participation in World War I. Designs for Liberty Loan posters were solicited and submitted by the artists of the day. There were four Liberty Loan campaigns during the war, as well as the Victory Liberty Loan campaign that occurred in April of 1919. The posters helped contribute to the success of the campaigns, and over $20 billion dollars was raised.
