Synopsis for "The True Story of Uncle Sam--Who He Was and How He Came To Be"

In 1777, near Valley Forge Pennsylvania, an American patriot remembered only by his first name, Samuel, was shot dead by some Hessian soldiers. In his last moments, he saw and talked to the spirit of Uncle Sam, and was reassured that America would be free. Sam became Uncle Sam, or united with Uncle Sam, and invisibly provided guidance to the USA during its turbulent history.

One day Uncle Sam, gigantic and invisible, passes through a small Midwestern town, and listens in on a conversation. It’s about the Black Legion, and the one voice advocating standing up to them has a white beard and is also named Sam. That night, Unc appears in Sam’s home, and they have a conversation, similar to the one in 1777. Sam trims his beard and changes his clothes, taking on the persona of Uncle Sam himself.

In a barn on a farm not far from town, the hooded and robed Black Legion, all six of them, are deciding on a strategy. They need to get control of this town, Glen Valley, and they’re ready to use automatic weapons to get it. The next morning, they ride into town on motorcycles, wielding machine guns, and inflict a lot of civilian casualties, both in town and in the surrounding countryside.

Uncle Sam attacks them, at the county creamery, locking them inside with himself, then wades into them. Bullets are useless against him, and he snaps rifle-barrels in half with one hand, like they were pencils. One Black Legionnaire manages to whack him on the head, hard enough to bend a thick iron bar, and it DOES squash his hat, but not his cheerful approach to dealing out the fisticuffs. Very soon the Black Legion, all still alive, are hanging from hooks on the creamery wall, waiting for the police to arrive.
