Plate made in Vietnam, 2002, with the image of Ho Chi Minh. The text on the plate reads:”58th anniversary of the establishment of vietnam. National Day of the Dead”. Vietnamees is hard to translate so the translation could be a bit off. The plate is made to commemorate Vietnam.
The country came into existence after Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence on September 2, 1945 in Hanoi’s Quảng trường Ba nh Square. The country then became independent from the Union of Indochina.
He read passages from the American Declaration of Independence, replacing the word England with France. This statement was made available to him by a member of the OSS, a precursor to the CIA. Almost immediately after this, Ho and his Vietminh were expelled from Hanoi by the French and fought a heavy war with the French. This would become the First Indochina War. In this, the Democratic Republic of Vietnam recaptured the area in the north of Vietnam, while in the south the French-backed State of Vietnam was established under Emperor Bao Đại.
