July 1942: United We Stand
A Variety of Interests
Page 1 2

American magazines reflected and responded to the wide range of interests of the American people. Many July 1942 flag covers were customized to appeal to different audiences — antique collectors and Boy Scouts, sports enthusiasts and gourmet cooks, farmers and movie fans. Linked by the common motif of the stars and stripes, the publications gave visible meaning to the phrase United We Stand.
