Remembering “Pearl Harbor” December 7, 1941

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese surprise attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. President Franklin D. Roosevelt dubbed the attack as ‘a date which will live in infamy,’ and he couldn’t have predicted it better. 70 years later, Americans vividly remember what happened on that fateful day … The Empire of Japan launched a surprise attack on the US naval base in Hawaii killing 2,350 people. The wreckage at Pearl Harbor was devastating. The USS Downes and USS Cassin are shown here soon after the end of the Japanese air attack. Cassin capsized onto the Downes.
