The fact is, people recall the official depiction of Uncle Sam portraying the striped hat...
Which might simply be due to people seeing all of the striped hats SINCE that original poster art and recalling those instead of the original poster
That is to say if the "incorrect" striped hat has been far more commonly depicted and worn far more often over the years than the "correct" original
white hat, then that "incorrect" striped hat will most likely be remembered by more people since they are likely to have seen the strpied version far
more often and more recently.
