A Date Which Live in Infamy...

Franklin D. Roosevelt addresses Congress on December 8, 1941, the day after the Japanese attacked a U.S. naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, killing some 2,400 Americans. “I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us,” FDR said. Congress approved a declaration of war against Japan with only a single dissenting vote. Photo Courtesy of FDR Library
