EXTRA! The War Is Over—V-J Day
I've got several timelines in the works but nothing ready for tonight so instead I'm posting a photo of a copy of the Warren Tribune Chronicle I found in a box of papers (or should I say treasures—lots of genealogical finds) that belonged to my mother-in-law, Mary Athya Murphy. The newspaper is dated August 14, 1945 and was published in Warren, Ohio. She would have been 16 years old when this historical event took place. I wish I knew she had this newspaper while she was still alive. I would have loved to talk to her about it and see what she remembered about V-J Day.
