    One thought on “Roses And Buckshot”

    1. James Montgomery Flagg was the guy who painted the original "I Want You" Uncle Sam poster. His autobiography describes his eccentric childhood, his summers in Biddeford Pool, his life in the sophisticated fast lane, and his very idiosyncratic viewpoints. A fascinating portrait of an unusual local figure from a memorable past.
