A rousing history of the good old U.S.A.Since he first appeared in the 1800's, Uncle Sam has inspired our nation. A symbol of patriotic duty and national pride, Uncle Sam has witnessed our history, from the victory over the British in the War of 1812, to the struggle of the Great Depression, to the efforts of the civil rights movement. This eloquent book recounts America's past through Uncle Sam's eyes, celebrating the fortitude and ingenuity that are the hallmarks of this national symbol. With illustrations that incorporate postage stamps and antique images from each era, as well as portraits of famous Americans whose actions changed history, and back matter about the people in the book, this is a timeless tribute to Uncle Sam -- an icon whose spirit embodies the American dream.
