A color poster of a frowning Uncle Sam with his jacket and top hat on the floor at his feet. He rolls up his sleeves with one hand, and with his other hand is clenched into a fist. Directly behind him is a flying bald eagle and the sun. The background design is a stars-and-stripes motif and the image is designed to appear as if it is mounted on posts.
