A black and white postcard of a U. S. soldier holding the world in his hands as he gazes at the moon. Text printed on the card says, "Democracy against Autocracy, O man in the moon, What did you see, While looking this old world o'er, You watched and wept and never slept, For twenty four hours or more. O man in the moon, You know you've seen, Democracy arising, In every land, in every man, 'Tis fact and not surmising." Part of a series of illustrated postcards produced by the Merval Corporation, New York City, during World War I.
