Carol Stream Library Presents- Pearl Harbor: 80th Anniversary (Virtual)
December 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm
Carol Stream Library generously invites Sycamore Library patrons to join them virtually on December 8th at 7:00pm to hear the story of Pearl Harbor from Historian Jim Gibbons.
On December 7, 1941, the United States was suddenly and deliberately surprise-attacked by Japanese Naval and Air Forces and then thrust from isolationism into World War II. Gibbons will show you the beginnings of the storms of war that led to the predawn attack. He will explain how our government in Washington and the people of the United States were wooed to vulnerability and then struck hard by the Empire of Japan, suffering a devastating naval loss in a little over one hour and fifty minutes. Join Gibbons to also learn how the people of the United States, as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated, “In their righteous might [did] succeed to absolute victory!”.
