Title:    The American's Creed

Comments:     This World War I poster sponsored by the Liberty Loan Committee of New England promotes the sale of Liberty Bonds with a statement of American principles, The American's Creed, which includes excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. It was written in 1917 by William Tyler Page in response to a nation-wide essay contest and was accepted on behalf of the American people by the U.S. House of Representatives on April 3, 1918. The poster concludes that it is therefore the "duty to go to my limit and invest all my surplus in 'Victory' Liberty Bonds."
