Old Glory raised before the Four Freedoms exhibit.

Designers, painters, printmakers, writers, sloganeers, and poster artists created stamps, billboards, pamphlets, woodcuts, prints, murals, and even a sculpture -- at Roosevelt's request -- to bring the President's message to a broad public. A month before Pearl Harbor, the Office of Emergency Management commissioned Jean Carlu to mount an exhibit, a photomontage that traveled to scores of American cities explaining during the war years "why we fight."
