The government sent speakers from town to town to speak to people about the war and the need for everyone to rally around it. For many people living in small isolated places, having dynamic speakers coming into town was comparable to a concert or a great cultural event. It broke up the tedium and routine of their lives and made them feel as if they were a part of something larger.
