When was pearl harbor

Japan's anger at America led to the aggressive act of the bombing of Pearl Harbor on 12/7/1941. America had a declared an embargo against Japan, banning all goods from being given to them. Japan at the time was at war with China, and without these products from America they were weak and without necessary materials. Japan decided to attack America, thinking that if they distracted the US they could take over South-East Asia , which was rich with resources, without American interference.

When I was a little boy, my family and many others were rounded up by the U.S. government after Pearl Harbor and shipped off to Japanese internment camps. Many of us were U.S. citizens, but because of the way we looked, we were held prisoner in our own country. It has been my life goal to tell this story so that history never repeats itself. In my musical, Allegiance, to make sure we never forget the atrocities that occur when fear and division overtake our country. I invite you to see this…

He discovered that FDR not only…

The Story  When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, they knew they had awoken a sleeping giant, but they had no idea just how prepared this giant was for war.
