ABSTRACT
The article narrates the Japanese surrender ceremony held aboard the battleship Missouri on September 2, 1945. The Japanese refused to accept their copy of the surrender document due to the error of the Canadian representative in signing on the wrong line. The table used to sign the documents is said to be one of the prize exhibits of the Smithsonian Institute. A soldier relates that he was saying the rosary during the ceremony.
