Arsenal Collection

Front cover of Eyes Front America

Eyes Front America was published in 1951, to warn U.S. citizens of impending slavery through loss of liberty and property rights, and how they can “fight back against the enemies within the nation” based on the ideals and philosophy of America Plus. Censorship, a growing federal government, the United Nations, and the threat of communism were all presented as tyrannical and threats to civil liberties and the “Promise of 1776.” Included is an envelope and enrollment application to the program America Plus, as well as a form letter to use when sharing the publication with others.  Eyes Front America is part of the Arsenal Collection, a growing collection of over 10,000 items issued by extremist or right-wing organizations and agitators dating from the late nineteenth century to the present.
