Saipan -- Open Gate Chalan Canoa

The native people on Saipan had a fence to keep the Japanese that remained on the island separate. These pictures were kind of a celebration to open the gates. A lot of servicemen came to take pictures. My memory on the details of this are a little sketchy. If anyone can fill me in or correct my memory on this, I would appreciate it.

Hi Al,
There were two camps in Saipan. On July 4, 1947 the gates were open for good. This day was called Saipan's Liberation Day, which is still a celebrated Saipan holiday today. You can see my research here:
