Uncle Sam.

Uncle Sam Statue

Newly restored and returned to Danbury after many years in upstate New York. Now located at the Danbury Railway Museum. He originally stood at the Danbury Fair from 1969 to 1981. 35 feet tall. Almost complete but not quite; the city still needs to install Uncle Sam's cane.
