Who is Uncle Sam?
I WANT YOU FOR THE US ARMY! Does that sound familiar to you? Do you know who the most famous uncle is ever? Uncle Sam is! The story of Uncle Sam all started in the war of 1812. Samuel Wilson was a meat packer for the Army and stamped US on the meat boxes. People joked that US meant “Uncle Sam”. It really meant United States. Years later an artist drew a picture that had his way of seeing Uncle Sam. Then the government made a poster trying to get people to go in to the Army, and Uncle Sam was on it. I chose this article because I think it is very importation to US history. This article relates to a career choice I might do because I want to go into the Army.
