On #ThisDayinHistory 1945, the U.S. flag is raised on Iwo Jima. During the bloody Battle for Iwo Jima, U.S. Marines from the 3rd Platoon, E Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Regiment of the 5th Division took the crest of Mount Suribachi, the island’s highest peak and most strategic position, and raised the U.S. flag #AceHistoryNews reports

#AceHistoryNews – Feb.23: American soldiers fighting for control of Suribachi’s slopes cheered the raising of the flag, and several hours later more Marines headed up to the crest with a larger flag: Joe Rosenthal, a photographer with the Associated Press, met them along the way and recorded the raising of the second flag along with a Marine still photographer and a motion-picture cameraman #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8045Rosenthal took three photographs atop Suribachi: Marine photographer Louis Lowery was with them and recorded the event: The first, which showed five Marines and one Navy corpsman struggling to hoist the heavy flag pole, became the most reproduced photograph in history and won him a Pulitzer Prize: Many of these men, including three of the six soldiers seen raising the flag in the famous Rosenthal photo, were killed before the conclusion of the Battle for Iwo Jima in late March………………By March 3, U.S. forces controlled all three airfields on the island, and on March 26 the last Japanese defenders on Iwo Jima were wiped out. Only 200 of the original 22,000 Japanese defenders were captured alive…………More than 6,000 Americans died taking Iwo Jima, and some 17,000 were wounded. #IwoJima #IconicPhotograph #MIlitaryHistory #WWII #1945 #OTD #AceFinanceNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1917, Mata Hari is executed for espionage by a French firing squad #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Oct.15: She came to Paris in 1905 and found fame as a performer of exotic Asian-inspired dances #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7214 She soon began touring all over Europe, telling the story of how she was born in a sacred Indian temple and taught ancient dances by a priestess who gave her the name Mata Hari, meaning “eye of the day” in Malay……..In reality, Mata Hari was born in a small town in northern Holland in 1876, and her real name was Margaretha Geertruida Zelle……..Regardless of her authenticity, she packed dance halls and opera houses from Russia to France,mostly because her show consisted of her slowly stripping nude………..She became a famous courtesan, and with the outbreak of World War 1 her catalog of lovers began to include high-ranking military officers of various nationalities……….In February 1917, French authorities arrested her for espionage and imprisoned her at St. Lazare Prison in Paris……..In a military trial conducted in July, she was accused of revealing details of the Allies’ new weapon, the tank, resulting in the deaths of thousands of soldiers……….Her military trial was riddled with bias and circumstantial evidence, and it is probable that French authorities trumped her up as “the greatest woman spy of the century” as a distraction for the huge losses the French army was suffering on the western front. #MataHari #WWI #spy #1917 #WorldWar1 #AceHistoryNews
