Description:

Offered by the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, this Web site is an attractive presentation of the early 1940's via magazine covers and commentary about them. In the wake of September 11, having seen the phrase "God Bless America" posted on signs ranging from church fronts and bumper stickers to restaurants windows and gas stations, readers should relate to the use of the 1942 slogan "United We Stand," adopted by over five hundred magazines as a response to the United States' declaration of war during World War II. In HTML with a skippable Flash intro, the Web site elegantly explains and illustrates the campaign championed by the American press. Scholars, as well as amateur historians and the most casual researchers, should find the site not only worthwhile but also enjoyable. For users less interested in browsing the presentation, the site provides a substantial search page for the 300+ magazine covers in the collection.
