From the archived Smithsonian traveling exhibition "July 1942," about the "United We Stand" campaign that spread across the country after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The exhibition included 88 magazine covers from the era, this one from "The Poultry Tribune," published by the Poultry Tribune Co. The exhibition was a collaboration with the National Museum of American History. http://www.sites.si.edu/exhibitions/exhibits/archived_exhibitions/july/main.htm
