Stronghold of peace
In this editorial cartoon by Carey Orr about the Midwestern opposition to Franklin Roosevelt's defense preparations, American soldiers representing several Midwestern states stand in a trench. On the soldiers' side of the trench is a wall labeled "The Middle West," while on the opposite side of the trench is the U.S. Capitol Building and the words "War Propaganda." The editorial shows Midwestern opposition to Franklin Roosevelt's defense preparations.
