Pearl Harbor Attack
By: Emma Carr
Before the attacks President Franklin Roosevelt made an appeal at peace, which wasn't accepted. Two days after the appeal the attacks happened. We were able to detect the attacks an hour before they happened. There were two waves of attacks. The first one targeted airfields and battleships, the second wave targeted ships and shipyards. A 1,760 pound bomb was dropped on the USS Arizona and the US Pacific Fleet, killing thousands of people. The people at these places were killed as well as some of the people around these places. These attacks happened between 8:00 and 9:45 in the morning.
Now today, December 8th, the USA and Britain have declared war on Japan, who has Germany and Italy as their allies.
Many small boats as well as larger ships were destroyed during the bombing.
Ships were bombed killing everyone in and around them.
After the attack people came together in remembrance.
