    Poster, color, 14 x 10 in., published by the United States Government Printing Office. The first Series E U.S. Savings Bond was purchased by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on May 1, 1941. During WWII war bonds were a source of monetary income for the United States government. Americans were urged to buy war bonds and war savings stamps. Purchasing bonds was considerd not only patriotic, but also an investment in victory. While the initial goal of selling war bonds was to finance the war, it had the positive side-effect of raising morale on the home-front. By the end of the war 85 million Americans had invested in war bonds. Nazi Germany surrendered unconditionally on May 8, 1945, now know as V-E Day (Victory in Europe). The 7th War Loan bond drive began a few days later, on May 14, 1945. During the six weeks of this drive over 26 billion dollars worth of war bonds were sold.
