This poster design was commissioned by Abbott Labs , a medical products company that supplied the United States military forces in World War I and II . The text on the bottom of the poster reads "Published by Abbott Laboratories as a Contribution to the Treasury's Schools-At-War Program". This particular design emphasizes all citizens in the homefront should bear their obligation to support the war effort by purchasing war bonds to help finance the war. The artist Ernest Fiene ( 1894-1965) depicts the seaman going off to war and suggests to all citizens in the home front to Come Across and Buy War Bonds to contribute their share to the war effort.

Ernest Fiene was born in Germany in 1894 and fled his native country prior to World War I and established himself in the United States. He studied at the National Academy of Design in New York City, and then at the Beaux Arts Institute. He later continued his studies at the Art Students League of New York. Fiene was known primarily for his varied printed works, including lithographs and etchings. His notable work includes cityscapes, views of New York City in particular, landscapes and other figural art. As part of the war effort, he, like many other artists of the era contributed designs for the Government's advertising programs.
