This United States Marine Corps officer gained fame long after World War Two when, on 23 February 1945 he and others climbed Iwo Jima's Mount Suribachi and were captured on film during the first of two flag raisings there -- the second being Joe Rosenthal's immortal image. Item #45815
PS, 8" X 10," n.p., n.y. Fine. Handsome mat-finish reproduction of the famed photograph by Staff Sgt. Louis R. Lowery, with Lindberg standing just right of center. In a light area alongside his profiled face, he boldly pens in black fineline: "Charles W. Lindberg / 1st Flag Raiser, Iwo Jima, / Feb. 23, 1945, 10:30 A.M." A superb example.
