"A Day of Infamy"

Headline of the day. "Japs" is now considered a derogatory term.

                                                      President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933

December 7, 1941 was a day that America will never forget. It was the attack of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii by the Japanese.The attack came without warning in the morning hours and hundreds of soldiers on naval vessels were killed. Bombs were dropped out of enemy planes.  Americans were  shocked and stunned; this type of destruction and loss of life had never occurred on American soil by a foreign country.

 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Congress immediately declared war, and the U.S. entered World War II against the Axis Powers of Japan and Germany. A sad and tragic day, where the phrase," A Day Of Infamy" was coined by FDR to convey the outrage and sadness.
