Posters are ideal for stimulating classroom discussion, setting the stage for a particular historical topic, or for display in a classroom, library, or community center. Each poster reproduces a historical document, print, or photograph, most from the Gilder Lehrman Collection. They are on high-quality poster paper, measuring 22" x 30". New posters (shown in bold) are on white paper; previously printed posters are on ivory paper. They can be purchased from the Gilder Lehrman History Shop.
