Chaplin selling Liberty Bonds on Wall Street, 98 years ago today
In the Spring of 1918 Chaplin spent one month touring the southern U.S. selling Liberty Bonds. Last year I created a short series which focused on several dates of the tour, providing an in-depth "play by play" of each appearance, as well as the physical and mental toll the tour had on him. There were enormous crowds everywhere he went. Just imagine if you were around in 1918 and Charlie Chaplin was coming to your town?
