Uncle Sam

Brother Jonathan completely lost popularity to Uncle Sam (who clearly took over some details of his appearance from him) after the American Civil War.

Counts. that the prototype of Uncle Sam, who unwittingly gave him his name, was Samuel Wilson.

Samuel (Sam) Wilson during the years of the war between Great Britain and the United States in 1812-15, known as the “Second War of American Independence”, lived in Troy, New York, and was engaged in the quality control of meat supplies for the US Army. The barrels of meat that Wilson tested were labeled EA US (EA – the initials of the supplier Elbert Anderson and US – United States, “United States”). Most of these barrels were delivered to a military camp located near Troy, and many of the soldiers there personally knew Sam Wilson and his nickname – “Uncle Sam”. They joked that Uncle Sam (Unkle Sam) signs the barrels with his initials. The joke quickly spread, it became more and more popular, and pretty soon the expression “Uncle Sam” became commonplace to refer to the US government or the United States of America itself.

In September 1976, during the celebration of the bicentennial of the United States in the town of Arlington, Massachusetts, a monument to Uncle Sam was erected. More precisely, this is a monument to both Uncle Sam, the character-symbol of the United States, and his prototype – Samuel Wilson, because it was here, in Arlington in 1766, that Samuel Wilson was born. Another monument to Uncle Sam was erected in the city of Troy, where Samuel Wilson lived and worked.

The now-familiar image of Uncle Sam first appeared in this form in 1917 on a poster calling to join the US Army. The famous poster was created by American artist and illustrator James Montgomery Flagg. The very idea of ​​a character looking straight at the viewer and pointing a finger at him was borrowed by Flagg from a British propaganda poster of 1914 depicting the Minister of War, Lord Kitchener (by the way, the same idea was repeatedly used on Russian, German, Soviet and other posters). But James Flagg drew the appearance of Uncle Sam himself, and used himself as a model, adjusting for age and adding a beard. During the First World War, in 1917-18, over four million copies of this famous poster were printed in the United States,

The image created by James Flagg turned out to be so popular and in demand that it was repeatedly used by other artists on posters, cartoons and comics.
