    Description

    Charles Evans Hughes: Women's Campaign Train Poster. Although women were denied the vote until 1920, they still found ways to participate in presidential elections and somehow influence the outcome. As their seventy-year struggle neared its goal, major party candidates offered their support of the suffrage cause. In 1916, both Wilson and Hughes expressed solidarity with the women's suffrage movement. This 20" x 35" poster was issued in conjunction with the "Women's Campaign Train for Hughes. A National Tour of Patriotic Women To Give Us A Great President for a Great Crisis." The campaign train is seen criss-crossing the continent and Uncle Sam greets a group of these patriotic women and their toddlers. The colors on this stone lithograph are outstanding. Until it crossed our path, we were unaware of its existence and consider it the one of the premier posters of the post-1908 period. It has been professionally mounted on linen and is ready for display.
