June 6th., 1944 - The Allied Invasion of Normandy

"The Americans who fought here that morning knew word of the invasion was spreading through the darkness back home. They thought--or felt in their hearts, though they couldn't know in fact, that in Georgia they were filling the churches at 4 a.m., in Kansas they were kneeling on their porches and praying, and in Philadelphia they were ringing the Liberty Bell."
President Ronald Reagan.

Note: This WW II photo doesn't look exactly like Normandy to me, but the idea is there.
