    Uncle Sam is a popular symbol of the United States, but where did he come from? Was he a real person? In1813, the United States got its nickname, Uncle Sam. The name is linked to Samuel Wilson, a meat packer(肉类企业主) from Troy, New York(纽约州特洛伊市).
  During a war in 1812, Samuel supplied barrels(桶) of beef to the United States Army. Wilson stamped the barrels with “U.S.” for United States, but soldiers began referring to the food as “Uncle Sam’s,” because the “U.S.” stood for “Uncle Sam” as well. The local newspaper picked up on the story and Uncle Sam then became the nickname for the U.S. federal government(美国联邦政府). People began to draw Uncle Sam in different ways. Thomas Nast was the first to draw the image of Uncle Sam. Nast gave him a white beard and a Stars and Stripes(星条旗) suit. However, Uncle Sam was not yet done changing.
  In 1916, James Montgomery Flagg drew his own version(版本) of Uncle Sam. In his version, Uncle Sam was wearing a tall top hat, blue jacket and was pointing straight at the viewer. The famous “I Want You” poster used this image. This poster was widely used in World War I and World War II. Flagg’s version is now the standard(标准) for Uncle Sam. Uncle Sam has become one of the most iconic(标志性的) images in American politics.
