Sarah Lowery Batham History 102 Historical or Political Poster Analysis http://www.boreme.com/media/yr2008/ww2-recruitment-posters-1-1.jpg Originally published as the cover for the July 6, 1916 issue of Leslie’s Weekly with the title “What Are You Doing for Preparedness?” this portrait of “Uncle Sam” (a.k.a. the United States), went on to become “the most famous poster in the world” (according to it’s creator, James Montgomery Flagg). The poster itself depicts Uncle Sam pointing towards the viewer, with the words “I WANT YOU for the U.S. ARMY”. Underneath that it says “ENLIST NOW”, all in capital letters. Over four million copies were printed between 1917 and 1918, as the United States entered World War I and began sending troops into war zones. The poster was directed towards American males (and some females) in hopes to get them to enlist into the U.S. Army. This particular poster I found is black and white, but I have seen them printed in color.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
