American Heritage Museum to host WWII Symposium: Pearl Harbor – Inevitable or Infamy?

December 4

Hudson – The American Heritage Museum, 568 Main St, Hudson, will host WWII Symposium: Pearl Harbor – Inevitable or Infamy? on Dec. 4.

On Dec. 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service attacked the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor. The assault would plunge the United States into a second world war that ultimately resulted in the deaths of over 418,000 Americans and an unfathomable 70 to 80 million worldwide. Coined by President Roosevelt as the “day of infamy,” the attack on Pearl Harbor and declarations of war on the United States four days later by Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy propelled the United States into a war on two sides of the world – the Pacific and European theaters.

Now, 80 years later, the attacks on Pearl Harbor still invoke feelings of patriotism and sadness. Our country changed forever after Dec. 7, 1941. The symposium will cover the history that leads to this pivotal moment and how it continues to affect our world’s nations, democracies, and civic order.

This is a special event exclusive to symposium participants. Lunch will be served as well as coffee and refreshments and personal tours through the amazing American Heritage Museum are part of the event.

Erik Goldstein, “The Quest for Naval Mastery.”
Grant Rhode, “From the China Quagmire into the Pacific.”
