Uncle Sam World War 1 Recruiting Poster

[More Uncle Pictures]

This is perhaps the most famous and enduring image of Uncle Sam.  It was created by James Montgomery Flagg, but was definitely influenced by earlier work by Thomas Nast. The artwork was created in 1917 as a recruiting poster for the U.S. Army. At the time, the US Army was in need of more troops to help fight World War I.
