Despite the fact that the Spanish Civil War followed the Great Depression and World War I, many individual Americans chose to get involved in the cause. Although this happened throughout the United States, there was an especially large group of interested people in Florida. This flier announces a performance organized by the Ladies’ Section of the Centro Asturiano on April 25, 1937, to purchase milk for Spanish children. If children under 12 donated a can of milk, they could attend for free. This flier demonstrates one way in which Americans responded to the Spanish Civil War.
