    "I Am Telling You" World War I Uncle Sam Patriotic Poster by James Montgomery Flagg, 1918. "On June 28th I expect you to enlist in the army of war savers to back up my army of fighters. W.S.S. Enlistment. The Torch of Liberty." 20" x 30", lithographed in bold red, white, and blue colors on white paper by the American Lithographic Co. of New York. Flagg's iconic Uncle Sam has his hands on his hips as he exhorts patriotic Americans to follow President Wilson's appeal given on June 18th: "I earnestly appeal to every man woman and child to pledge yourselves on or before the 28th of June, to save constantly and buy regularly Government securities. The person who buys War Savings Stamps transfers the purchasing power of his money to the United States Government until after the war. May there be none unenlisted in the great volunteer army of production and savings." Small corner tear at lower right with paper loss- repaired on verso, two other tiny edge tears also repaired on verso, colors bright, overall fine.
