Today in 1947: President Truman pardons some 1,500 of the more than 15,000 World War Two draft resisters who had been convicted and served time in prison for their offense.
Five years later, on the same day, shortly before leaving office, Truman granted full pardon and restoration of civil and political rights to former convicts who had served in the peacetime army or who had not been covered by his earlier pardon, as well as all convicted peacetime deserters.
