Good Ol’ Uncle Sam

James Montgomery Flagg is the man behind the famous “I want you” campaign. This work was done during WWII in hopes to rasie reenforcements and inspire people to contriube and give to the cause. The work shows Uncle Sam, known as the greater good of American and the symbol of patriotism calling on every individual specifically.  While this is the original work there have been many remakes of the sign.
