His appearance is derived from two earlier symbolic figures in American folklore—Brother Jonathan and Yankee Doodle. Uncle Sam…[was] used …to represent the United States by U.S. cartoonists from the early 1830s to 1861. One of the most familiar treatments in the 20th century was shown in James Montgomery Flagg's World War I recruiting poster, also used in World War II, for which the caption read, I Want You.'" -- The Encyclopedia Britannica website
