Exhibition at Littleton Museum - "Over the Top: Selling the First World War to a Nation Divided"
The Littleton Museum is pleased to present Over the Top: Selling the First World War to a Nation Divided, on view through June 2, 2019.
Prior to entering the war in 1917, many Americans were against joining the conflict in Europe. A series of dramatic events, including the sinking of the RMS Lusitania, prompted President Wilson to ask Congress for a declaration of war. Within days, the US government mounted the largest propaganda campaign ever seen. Its goal was to convince the American people that survival of the nation and democracy depended upon entering and winning the war.
Using images and artifacts from the Littleton Museum’s collection, visitors are invited to experience and learn about forms of propaganda, and how it was used in World War I.
The Littleton Museum is open Tuesday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. The museum is closed on Mondays and major holidays.
