Memorial Weekend, Day 3

First, for Memorial Day itself, we have If the Living and the Dead Were to March Together by Harrison Cady, from a 1916 issue of Life magazine, during World War I.

Click on any cartoon, to see an enlarged version.

During Great Depression I, unemployed WW I veterans sold pamphlets, to raise small amounts of cash. Similar in concept to the modern Street News sold by the homeless in New York City, this activity lent these veterans more dignity, than outright begging. Some of the pamphlets had prices on them, but many simply asked people to pay what they pleased.

The remaining cartoons are from such pamphlets. The immediately below page is by Doc Rankin, while the artist of the next page is unidentified.

Below left, the cover from one such pamphlet, with cover art by Winsor McCay. The below right photo is from when, in 1932, President Herbert Hoover had unemployed WW I veterans driven out of Washington, D.C. using troops, bayonets, and tear gas.
