Sam Wilson, also known as "Uncle Sam" is an original character in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Sam's life prior to the outbreak.


At some point either before or during the apocalypse, Sam relocated to the Hilltop Colony. He became a meat packer who liked to keep the Fourth of July spirit alive. Every year on that day he dons his suit and has a barbeque with fireworks.
