D-Day anniversary events around US and abroad - Article Photos 1/25

This photo provided by Bonhams shows a tattered 48-star American flag that flew aboard the U.S.-built LST 493 on D-Day that is being auctioned by Bonhams in New York on Thursday, June 5, 2014. The flag is among the hundreds of D-Day and other World War II artifacts being auctioned a day before the 70th anniversary of the history-changing invasion. The auction also features rare print-outs of the original series of hourly Dow Jones news bulletins with some of the first reports of the fighting on France’s north coast on June 6, 1944.
