Morale on the home front has always played a key role during times of war. In the times before broadcast media became widespread, one of the easiest ways to reach the populace was through visual art – this included the poster.
In the 40 years of the existence of the MacArthur Memorial, a picture of MacArthur giving his speech at the Pearl Harbor Conference has been sought by dozens if not hundreds of researchers.

The Liberation Plaque Memorial was dedicated in MacArthur Square on April 1, 2006. Attended by more than 100 people and 13 former internees and liberators of the Japanese Internment Camps in the Philippines, the rain held off long enough for the ceremony to take place.
