Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of Uncle Sam Day
  • Did you know? During the War of 1812, soldiers misinterpreted the ‘U.S.’ abbreviation on their ‘U.S. Beef’ rations, thus coining the phrase ‘Uncle Sam’.

Uncle Sam (which has the same initials as United States) is a common national personification of the federal government of the United States or the country in general.

Since the early 19th century, Uncle Sam has been a popular symbol of the US government in American culture and a manifestation of patriotic emotion.

The image has developed a strong association with the army due to its use in military propaganda.
