Uncle’s Sam Posters – Tribute to Election Day

According to Wikipedia real Uncle Sam was Samuel Wilson (1766-1854) a meat-packer from Troy, New York. His packages were marked U.S. and he was known among the workmen as “Uncle Sam”. Nowadays this character personifies American government or even the whole nation of the United State of America.

It is needless to say that original Uncle Sam from 1812 was one of the most successful propaganda examples in modern history. We’ve collected some original variations of Uncle Sam’s personality performed by modern artists. Hopefully this will become a good inspiration for you guys to go vote in tomorrow’s Elections. Here’s our tribute to the Election Day!
