Uncle Sam Bookmark

With the initials U.S., Uncle Sam has become the national personification of the American government. Mentioned as early as 1810, Uncle Sam got his standard appearance - white hair and a goatee, wearing a white top hat with white stars on a blue band, a blue tail coat, and red-and-white striped trousers - with the recruitment poster designed by James Montgomery Flagg in 1917 who used his own face as the model. Over 4 million posters of Uncle Sam were printed during World War I and used extensively during World War II.

Flagg was a prolific illustrator who sold his first works at the age of 12. During his career he worked for numerous popular magazines - The Saturday Evening Post, and Colliers and was reported to be the highest paid illustrator in America.
