Uncle Sam's Coloring Book

Uncle Sam is in the public domain as he has been around quite  spell. The term Uncle Sam is reputedly derived from Samuel Wilson, a meat packer from Troy, New York, who supplied rations for the soldiers during the War of 1812. There was a requirement at the time for contractors to stamp their name and where the rations came from onto the food they were sending. Wilson's packages were labeled "E.A – US." When someone asked what that stood for, a coworker joked and said "Elbert Anderson (the contractor) and Uncle Sam," referring to Sam Wilson, though it actually stood for United States. Images of Uncle Sam in print that resemble the modern look of old Sam can be found as far back as 1876.

According to wikipedia, In 1989, "Uncle Sam Day" became official. A Congressional joint resolution designated September 13, 1989 as "Uncle Sam Day" (birthday of Samuel Wilson).

Tons of posters utilizing Uncle Sam for the war efforts were produced during World War I and World War II including the most famous poster that included the line, "I want you for U.S. Army".

 Uncle Sam most famously appeared in the pages of DC Comics as leader of the Freedom Fighters but that wasn't his first comic book adventures.

Uncle Sam first appeared in National Comics #1 (July, 1940)  published by Quality Comics during the Golden Age of Comic Books. He was depicted as a mystical being who was originally the spirit of a slain patriotic soldier from the American Revolutionary War, and who now appears in the world whenever his country needs him. The character was used for a few years from 1940 to 1944, briefly receiving its own series, Uncle Sam Quarterly.  

In the DC Comics Freedom Fighters run, the team was initially based on a parallel world called Earth-X, where World War II had lasted into the 70s.  In the 80's Uncle Sam teamed up with Superman to save the Declaration of Independence, and also appeared in the 80's title set during World War II, the All-Star Squadron.
