December 7, 1941, ‘A Day That Will Live In Infamy’
December 7th is 'Pearl Harbor Day'.
It was 72 years ago today that the United States was attacked at Pearl Harbor. It was a day to remember.
Anyone in America that was alive and old enough remembered where they were and what they were doing when they heard the awful news. Many didn't even know where Pearl Harbor was, but they knew it was bad. And it was bad.
The next day President Franklin Roosevelt address the Senate and the House of Representatives (and the rest of the country on the radio). It was during this address that the President said seven of the most famous words of the 20th Century.
'A day that will live in infamy'.
The United States entered World War II.
