1983 commemoration of the treaty of Versailles in France by Don O. Thorpe

TREATY OF VERSAILLES

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR A LARGER VIEW


These patriotic photographs were taken in France in 1983 during the 200th anniversary of the 1783 Treaty of Versailles which recognized the United States of America as an independent sovereign nation among nations.


I was fortunate to be one of only several photographers allowed in the courtyard of the palace of Versailles during the official ceremony. This is the first time some of these photographs have been shown in public as well as on the Internet.
