Truman, the Voice of America, and the U.S. Army for communist spies - until he was condemned by the U.S. Senate in 1954.

1973 - Percy was 37 years old when on January 28th, the Paris Peace Accord was signed - supposedly ending the Vietnam War.

1989 - In the year of Percy v Cobbins's passing, on November 9th, the Berlin Wall fell. The Wall was built by the East Germans to keep East Berliners from escaping into West Berlin, separating families and friends.

People brought tools and took parts of the hated wall.
