    Seeking records about Japanese surrender in Peking, China

    Daniel Spano Newbie

      I have actual photos taken of up close shots on two of the main Japanese general's signing the peace treaty in Tiananmen square, Peking, China in 1945.  I have never found any record or mention of this historical event.  My father was one of the 1st Marines Division. After Guadalcanal, and Peleliu, and Okinawa, they went on to Peking, China.  During the historic signing of the peace treaty of Japan's forces there is when my father took these pictures.  I am just curious to know why I cannot find any info on such an important historical event.  I have the pictures if anyone is interested.
