James Montgomery Flagg (1877-1960) "Tell that to the Marines" had originally been an insult, implying that the Marines would believe anything, but Flagg's poster turned that around and made it into a veritable battle cry. James Montgomery Flagg was born at Pelham Manor in Westchester County, New York and was considered to be a prodigy. Flagg's first accomplishment in art was a contribution to St. Nicholas magazine at the age of twelve. Two years later he was drawing for Life magazine. He studied both in the U.S. and abroad in Paris, where he illustrated several books and portraits. His most well-known piece features Uncle Sam and the recruiting slogan "I Want You for U.S. Army." During his career, Flagg created 46 war posters in addition to writing and directing a film for the Red Cross. He was a diverse artist and character, whose work is sought after in galleries and museums throughout the world today. Rawls 166.; Flagg p. 82, Theofiles 72, Borkan p. 35.
