In 1917, in the year that Johnnie Gilchriest was born, "I Want You" became famous. James Montgomery Flagg's poster, featuring Uncle Sam and based on a 1914 British poster, attracted thousands of U.S. recruits to WWI duty. Over 4 million posters were printed in 1917 and 1918.

In 1925, at the age of just 8 years old, Johnnie was alive when gangster Al "Scarface" Capone took over the Chicago bootlegging racket at age 26.
