During WWI, Captain Harry S Truman (1884-1972) commanded D Battery, 1st Battalion, 129th Field Artillery, which holds the distinction of being the only D Battery in the Army. Field artillery batteries normally have A, B and C batteries. Truman, who had been a Major in the Missouri National Guard from 1905-1921, served as a Democratic U.S. Senator from Missouri from 1935-1945. At the 1944 Democratic National Convention, which opened on July 19, 1944, Truman was selected to be President Franklin D. Roosevelt's running mate for FDR's unprecedented fourth term. Sworn in as FDR's Vice President on January 20, 1945, Truman served until becoming President (1945-1953) upon Roosevelt's death on April 12, 1945. Slightly creased at blank corners. Minor surface creases (not evident head on). Lightly soiled at blank margins. Mounting remnants and stains on verso (no show through). Overall, fine condition.
