Contributed by Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records: State Library of Arizona

This collection was created to share artwork and posters created by the federal government that cover agriculture in America. Many of these posters and prints were distributed through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), though some pieces predate the FDLP. These posters were created for a variety of reasons, but all serve to honor the vital and varied roles played by Marines throughout our nation's history.
