Holloway advertised heavily to American soldiers, sailors, and their families during the Civil War. Posters and broadsides – include some in full color – declared that his products were the “Soldier’s True Friend.” One poster showed a Union officer carrying a box of the remedy to an ailing sergeant; another had Moses handing out Holloway’s pills and ointment to soldiers, civilians and freed slaves.
