Back in the early 1900's formations of soldiers were brought together to form human photo's of great American symbols.
I had previously received the photo of our grand Statue of Liberty but thanks to my pal, Patty of Winding Vine Wanderings, I can share more wonderful photos that were created in the pure essence of American Pride!
This photo was the Formation of Uncle Sam: at Camp Lee, Va., 1919. Number of people involved: 19,000.
The photographers were from Chicago. The newspaper has several other similar patriotic photos that they also did in 1918. All were done during WWI.
