Creation Date



One of 22 protest posters created by students at Columbia College Chicago who called themselves the "Columbia Collective". They were produced in 1970 as reaction to United States actions at Kent State and the conflicts in Cambodia and Vietnam; some were exhibited in a Chicago, Illinois exhibit, Student Strike Posters. The image of currency from poster 14 is at the top of this poster with its larger middle image depicting a scene with soldiers with guns drawn in the background and in the forefront, a dead person on a stretcher wtih three people assisting. The words "You don't count the dead/When God's on your side. -Dylan" is from the Bob Dylan song "With God on Our Side" that was on his 1964 album. White background and brown ink.
