From Freeper the headlines of the New York Times and accompanying stories of 7 August 1945.
Events from the previous day as reported, THE ATOMIC DESTRUCTION OF HIROSHIMA.
That use of the atomic bomb one of the most momentous events in human history undoubtedly.
"FIRST ATOMIC BOMB DROPPED ON JAPAN; MISSILE IS EQUAL TO 20,000 T0NS OF TNT; TRUMAN WARNS FOE OF A 'RAIN OF RUIN'"
"NEW AGE USHERED"
"Day of Atomic Energy Hailed by President, Revealing Weapon"
"HIROSHIMA IS TARGET"
"'Impentetrable' Cloud of Dust Hides City After Single bomb Strike"
The Manhattan Project a closely guarded secret from the American public EVEN THOSE MOST SENIOR MILITARY COMMANDERS NOW EVEN AWARE OF ATOMIC MUNITIONS DEVELOPMENT!!
At least until 7 August 1945!
