The bombing of Pearl Harbor
Cris Garcia R-2
Yesterday, morning December 9, 1941 we were attack at Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. 350 aircraft were destroyed or damaged. All 8 battleships of the U.S. Pacific Fleet were sunk or badly damaged. Claimed the lives of more than 2,400 and wounded 1,000 more. We believe they attacked us because we stopped the shipment of oil to them. This morning FDR gave the speech "Day in infamy".
