Truman was born on May 8, 1884. Truman
was the 33rd President of the United States.
He took over for Franklin Roosevelt when he died in 1945.
During World War II Harry Truman made a very important decision, to drop
the atomic bomb on Japan or not. The
choice he made was to drop the bomb, which ended World War II. Harry did not agree with what Joseph Stalin wanted for Russia
and he thought Stalin wanted to spread Communism.
In return Truman made the North Atlantic Treaty Association (NATO), which
is still in effect today. Harry
Truman died on December 26, 1972.
