Howard Chandler Christy was one of America's leading illustrators when the U.S. entered World War I in 1917. He produced some of the best posters of the war effort, typically featuring female beauties so striking they became known as "Christy Girls." These posters have become icons of the era, and recruited more soldiers and raised more dollars for the war effort than can be imagined.

The Spirit of America is Christy's most beautiful design for the Red Cross, and was created just after the war when the relief organization was overwhelmed by returning soldiers. Americans were so patriotic that 30 million Americans joined during the war, nearly one third of the 90 million population!
