National World War Ii Museum
Latest National World War Ii Museum Items
In a story March 29 about an exhibit at the National World War II Museum focusing on wartime experiences of Japanese Americans, The Associated Press erroneously reported that the exhibit is a traveling display on loan from the Smithsonian Institution. Some artifacts are on loan from the Smithsonian, but the exhibit is an original creation of the National World War II Museum and includes many items from its collection.
It began as an ordinary December day. People were gathered around the radio listening to a football game or planning holiday parties, not girding for battle. But on Dec. 7, 1941, when the first Associated Press report came over the radio at 2:22 p.m. Eastern Standard Time of a "bombing in Hawaii," the news was electrifying. Seventy years later, every American living now who heard it then can still tell you exactly what he was doing when he learned of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
