This Canadian poster’s depiction of Uncle Sam as a skull with an American Flag hat can be seen again in a poster from New Zealand calling for a march in 1970.

“I think it’s perfectly ridiculous what we’re doing about the Vietnam situation,” Mets’ pitcher Tom Seaver told the New York Times ahead of the 1969 World Series. Soon after, the Times article and Seaver’s face appeared on a flyer titled “Mets Fans for Peace,” handed out during game four of the series at Shea Stadium. The flyer included a mock program referencing the Days of Rage demonstrations taking place in Chicago, as well as an exhortation to sing John Lennon’s “Give Peace a Chance” after the national anthem. 

Our exhibition The Vietnam War: 1945 – 1975, now on view through April 22, 2018, includes more material related to the antiwar movement.

I don’t know why Lt Harley Pope [Platoon Commander] was not in this picture. He may have been detached on Liaison Officer duties at this time.
