Cat.No: 291445 U before V [gummed sticker]

U before V [gummed sticker]

Atlanta: [Ku Klux Klan], [194-]. Sticker. 3.5x3.75 inch gummed label, fine condition, unused. Intended for public posting.

The letters stand for Unity before Victory. Media reports from soon after the outbreak of WWII suggest that the appearance of these stickers in public places caused confusion, but the PO Box address at the bottom belonging to the headquarters of the Georgia Klan made their source clear. The FBI tracked their distribution around the country beginning in 1941 (before the US joined the war, when they were meant to signify prioritizing unified "Americanism" over the British "V for Victory" campaign).
