"Thousands Join in Big Celebration of Victory Over Hun Despotism."

This clipping from the Tuscaloosa News describes the city's victory celebrations, including "the biggest parade that has ever been pulled off in the city [...] witnessed by what is said to have been the largest crowd ever assembled on the streets at one time." The author laments the parade's lack of music and describes the festivities as a "monster affair." From vol. 30, no. 122 of the Tuscaloosa News, Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
