N2 - The entry of the United States into World War I was accompanied by a flurry of new icons and symbols for engagement, support, and commitment to the war effort. One such symbol was the "service flag", a banner to be displayed by families of which a member or members was serving overseas. Initially a simple banner bearing a blue star or stars, this was modified when servicemen began to die; a gold star replaced the blue. With blue stars, gold stars, and services flags were associated a large number of songs issued as sheet music. The differing interactions of these with other pre-existing genres, with various segments of the publishing and entertainment industries, with women's organizations formed around "gold star mothers", and with shifting cultural values and concerns, from militance through service to memorialization, illuminate both the evolution of the war in the public consciousness and the workings of the music business in a time of great transformations.
