First World War Soldier's Hand-Drawn Cartoon

Soldier-Drawn Cartoon About Receiving Mail From Home

This little hand-drawn cartoon was attached by makeshift glue to a letter that I had purchased. The letter was written in 1918 by an American soldier of the 101st Engineers, from the Front in France. This unit was part of the 26th Division, which took part in most of the major fighting in which Americans were involved in France.

This cartoon, more than any written words, conveys the great importance of mail from home during the War.
