Remember Pearl Harbor

Now and then I have to wander a bit and include other historical events of great significance. Of course, we had Steunenberg's and other kinfolk in WWII and some I have mentioned elsewhere on this blog. The following is from Your navigation of the site will be limited unless you are a subscriber. However, you can still get a look at quite a few pages. 
Remember Pearl Harbor: On December 7, 1941 Japanese forces attacked US Forces at Pearl Harbor, HI
On December 7, 1941, the United States suffered the most shocking military defeat in its history at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The Japanese surprise attack caused over 3,000 casualties and sank or damaged many ships including all eight battleships anchored in the harbor. Though the attack severely incapacitated the US Pacific fleet, it united a previously divided America and committed a nation to war.
