    Actually Uncle Sam said nothing about asking boys to join. He said YOU which is non sex specific.

    well, yes, to be sure. But when that poster with the Uncle Sam image was first illustrated (1917) there was a genuine need for male cannon fodder in Europe.

    Was a long time before women could join in fighting but they still risked their lives.

    Actually, Columbia is the female personification of the country. Uncle Sam only represented(s) the military.

    “Actually, Columbia is the female personification of the country. Uncle Sam only represented(s) the military.”


    “Uncle Sam” more broadly represents the government, not just the military, and that usage goes back at least to the 1830’s…
