Home Front Posters

The Campbell County Rockpile Museum announces a new traveling exhibit, “Home Front Posters of the Great War, 1917-1918” which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War I. This exhibit, organized by Fort Caspar Museum, highlights World War I-era posters created for a domestic audience and depicts activities Americans were encouraged to undertake stateside to support the war effort overseas. It consists of thirty framed copies of posters in the collection of the National World War I Museum and Memorial in Kansas City and will be on view at the Campbell County Rockpile Museum September 24 through November 4.

In addition to the traveling exhibit, the Rockpile Museum will display a selection of objects, photographs, documents, and letters related to World War I soldiers from Campbell County. From a WWI field desk to an emotional letter sent to a local mother that lost her son, this exhibit will both fascinate and touch the hearts of visitors. This exhibit has been sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank, the Fort Caspar Museum Association, and the Casper Memorial VFW Post 9439 & Auxiliary. 

Please contact the Campbell County Rockpile Museum at 307-682-5723 with any questions.
