ABSTRACT
The article recounts the surrender of Japan to the U.S. government on September 2, 1945 during the Second World War. On this day, the allies and the Japanese representatives gathered on the deck of Admiral Bill Halsey's Missouri, while overhead fluttered the American flag that Commodore Perry flew when he entered Tokyo Harbor in Japan in 1853. General Douglas MacArthur spoke and invited the representatives of Japan to sign the instrument that would end the war. The general then signed, and invited Admiral Chester Nimitz to come forward and sign for the U.S.
