    (June 18, 1877-1960)
    Painter of Uncle Sam 'I Want You for the US Army' poster
    Illustrated 'Yankee Girls Abroad (1900),' 'An Orchard Princess (1905),' 'Simon the Jester (1909),' and 'The Adventures of Kitty Cobb (1912)'
    The 'I Want You' poster is actually a copy of a British poster that depicted a British Officer urging Britons to join the war effort.
    Many people believe that the poster was made for World War II, but it actually originates from World War I.
    His artwork is more recognizable than he is.
    The Uncle Sam poster is the most famous poster of both the World War's propaganda efforts.
    Flagg was actually a commercial artist and his Uncle Sam image was part of 46 works he created in support of the war effort.
    At the age of twelve he had his first drawing accepted by a national magazine.
    At fourteen he was a regular contributor to Life Magazine and at fifteen was on the staff of the 'The Judge.'
    Works he designed to be in magazines now hang in art galleries across the country.
