U.S. Marines: First to Hoist Old Glory... (U.S. Marines, 1913). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Recruiting Poster (30" X 39.75") Alex Tornrose & Sidney H. Riesenberg Artwork. Prior to their involvement in World War I, the various branches of the U.S. military often encouraged new recruits to join by touting the opportunities found within the service. Education, travel, and national pride were all used to appeal to the more adventuresome of America's citizens, as can be seen in this poster by artists Alex Tornrose & Sidney H. Riesenberg. Restoration has been applied to some tears, small chips, and light surface wear. The white background and border has been airbrushed. There are a few post-restoration smudges and creases.
