Resolved Question: Truman Trial- Paul
In History, we are doing a simulation trial on Harry S Truman. I am a defense witness, Paul Tibbets, the pilot of the Enola Gay. I have to come up with 5 questions for the defense to ask me to help their side of the case. I have one or two I'm considering, but I need help with a few more. If you could give me some questions or a website or something that will help that would be great. Thanks :) Truman is being charged with dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and killing civilians.
