    (1878-November 5, 1942)
    Wrote several patriotic songs, including 'Over There,' 'Yankee Doodle Dandy,' and 'You're a Grand Old Flag'
    Portrayed by James Cagney in 'Yankee Doodle Dandy'
    He lied about being born on the fourth of July to increase his patriotic image.
    His true birthday is still unknown.
    He divorced his first wife after having a child with her.
    He wrote 'Over There' to encourage Americans to go to war during World War I.
    His songs bordered on pure jingoism, which even extended to the film biography 'Yankee Doodle Dandy.'
    'Yankee Doodle Dandy' falsely portrayed him as only having one wife, whose name did not match either of his real wives.
    He loved his country and showed it in his songs.
    He was married to his second wife for 35 years until his death.
    He is featured on a 15 cent postage stamp.
    He was awarded a Congressional Gold Medal in 1936.
    His songs are very catchy and a lot of them are still popular today.
    James Cagney won an Oscar for 'Yankee Doodle Dandy.'
