Pearl Harbor Day Today!

Posted by Laura Losch on December 7, 2009

Today, December 7th, marks the 68th anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor (it occurred on December 7, 1941). It’s sad to think that year after year we are losing the men and women who experienced this event first-hand (they are getting old is what I’m trying to say. . .). Hopefully historians and museums have archived their stories in some form or another (that would be a primary source!).

CNN has done a great job on reporting the event in their “Student News” section. Check it out: Pearl Harbor (As an added bonus, this news broadcast also covers the Climate Summit going on now in Copenhagen!)

National Geographic also has a great site commemorating the historic event: Pearl Harbor
