After we finished making paper airplanes and paper boats, we headed outside to the parking lot where Pearl Harbor was located. We placed our boats and planes and then walked thru the morning of December 7th, 1941 in Pearl Harbor. We got a little wet as the weather was misty, but we were at the harbor so that made sense. :-)
We finished up with FDR's speech asking Congress for a Declaration of War on December 8th. America wasn't the only country the Japanese attacked on the 7th. They also attacked Malaya, Hong Kong, Guam, the Philippine Islands, and Wake Island. They attacked Midway Island the morning of the 8th.
It was interesting to note that the Japanese had initiated formal negotiations for the maintenance of peace in the pacific and there ambassadors were still in Washington DC for that purpose when they attacked Pearl Harbor.
