The “U.S.A Bonds – Third liberty loan campaign – Boy Scouts of America” also known as the “U.S.A. Bonds – Boy Scouts of America” propaganda poster was used in the U.S.A during World War 1 to encourage the purchase of war bonds by the American people. The 3rd liberty war bond was enacted in 1918 and was the third in the series of war bonds during the first world war. It is estimated that 3rd liberty bond raised $3 billion dollars for the government to help fund the war effort.
The poster depicts a boy scout kneeling in front of what seems to be the embodiment of the U.S. statue of liberty. This woman is draped in the U.S. flag with a heavily adorned shield and sword. The shield is golden with the U.S. engraved on it. These poster specifically mention boy scouts, as the boy scouts of America sold these bonds. They used the slogan “Every scout to save a soldier.”.
