Uncle Sam I Want You Poster

Regular price $15.00

Uncle Sam Wants You poster. In one of the most famous and recognizable posters in the world, the Uncle Sam I Want You poster shows Uncle Sam pointing his finger at the viewer and telling them, 'I Want You For U.S. Army.' The phrase 'Nearest Recruiting Station' has a blank space below where an address for enlisting would be added. The 'Uncle Sam Wants You' figure originally appeared on the cover of the July 6, 1916, issue of Leslie's Weekly with a title of 'What Are You Doing for Preparedness?' Illustrator James Montgomery Flagg contributed a large number of images to support the WWI war effort. Because of the popularity of this image it was also used in WWII for recruiting. Our reproduction Uncle Sam Wants You poster is from a lithograph produced c. 1917.
