Description

Being offered is this beautiful pinback that reads: Harry S. Truman Centennial Independence Mo 1884-1984. Pinback is in very good plus condition. It measures approximately Diameter 1-3/4" and was designed as a Commemorative Label Pin.

Harry S. Truman, the son of a farmer, was born in Lamar, Missouri, on 8th May, 1884. After an education in Independence, he farmed on his parents' land. In 1917, soon after the United States entered the First World War, he enlisted in the army. Truman served on the Western Front and achieved the rank of captain.

Truman had been vice president for only 82 days when President Roosevelt died, April 12, 1945. He had had very little communication with Roosevelt about world affairs or domestic politics and was uninformed about major initiatives relating to the war and the top secret Manhattan Project, which was about to test the world's first atomic bomb.

Shortly after taking the oath of office, Truman said to reporters:

"Boys, if you ever pray, pray for me now. I don't know if you fellas ever had a load of hay fall on you, but when they told me what happened yesterday, I felt like the moon, the stars, and all the planets had fallen on me."

Upon assuming the presidency, Truman asked all the members of FDR's cabinet to remain in place, told them that he was open to their advice, and laid down a central principle of his administration: he would be the one making decisions, and they were to support him. Just a few weeks after he assumed office, on his 61st birthday, the Allies achieved victory in Europe.

Please be sure to ENLARGE my photos for an up close and personal look. Let the pictures be your guide, and I fell sure you won't be disappointed.
