Historical trivia not in the book

Uncle Sam (initials U.S.) is a common personification of the United States of American that, according to legend, came into use during the War of 1812 and was supposedly named for Samuel Wilson. Uncle Sam's actual origin is obscure. He represents a manifestation of patriotic emotion.

The first use of Uncle Sam in formal literature (as distinct from newspapers) was in the 1816 allegorical book "The Adventures of Uncle Sam in Search After His Lost Honor" by Frederick Augustus Fidfaddy, Esq. An Uncle Sam is mentioned as early as 1775, in the original "Yankee Doodle" lyrics of the American Revolutionary War. It is not clear whether this reference is to Uncle Sam as a metaphor for the United States, or to an actual person named Sam. The lyrics as a whole celebrate the military efforts of the young nation, besieging the British at Boston. The 13th stanza is:

Old Uncle Sam come there to change
Some pancakes and some onions,
For 'lasses cakes, to carry home
To give his wife and young ones.

Uncle Sam's appearance didn't become standard until the well-known recruitment poster of Uncle Sam that was created by James Montgomery Flagg in 1917. It was inspired by a British recruitment poster showing Lord Kitchener in a similar pose. It was this image more than any other that set the appearance of Uncle Sam as the elderly man with white hair and a goatee, wearing a white top hat with white stars on a blue band, a blue tail coat, and red and white striped trousers. The poster was used to recruit soldiers in World War I and World War II.
