    Vintage war photo's, guns replaced by flowers

  • Lisa Granados

    The photo depicts six American soldiers raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi on February 23. 1945. The island was stratigically important for the Americans in their war against Japan, and the battle continued for several weeks until it finally fell to the Americans. On March 26th Iwo Jima was declared "secure."
