When did Pearl Harbor happen?

“Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy on the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. The attack resulted in significant damage to the US Pacific Fleet and led to the United States’ entry into World War II. The attack took place early in the morning, with Japanese planes launching torpedoes and bombs on the US ships anchored at Pearl Harbor.

The attack resulted in the deaths of 2,403 Americans and wounded another 1,178. It also destroyed or damaged numerous ships and aircraft, including eight battleships. The attack shocked the American people and led to a declaration of war against Japan by President Franklin D. Roosevelt the following day. The attack on Pearl Harbor is considered a significant turning point in World War II and a defining moment in American history. Today, the USS Arizona Memorial and the Pearl Harbor National Memorial stand as tributes to the lives lost in the attack and a reminder of the need for vigilance and preparedness in the face of adversity.”
