#21 Civil War Recruiting Poster, 1863 (2)
Poster Caption: This recruiting poster of 1863 uses images of the past (deliverance from slavery) and the future (education and civil rights) to inspire African Americans to enlist and fight for the Union. By the end of the war, some 200,000 African Americans—like those seen going into battle at upper right—had served the Union forces.
These posters are 22" x 30", full color, and printed on a semi-gloss ivory stock. Each one features a caption that places the image in historical context.
