Celebrating on planet Earth

7/20/1969

American citizens celebrated the Moon landing in many different ways—by holding Moon parties, by taking photographs, or, in the case of Thaddeus A. Zagorewicz, by writing a letter of congratulations to President Richard Nixon. After watching the landing with his family, Zagorewicz was moved to conclude that they were “very proud to be American citizens.”
