Pearl Harbor was based on the actual attack on Pearl Harbor so their were many similarities to show what actually happened. In the first scene of the Japanese raid, a low-flying Japanese plane flew over Oahu and it passed over a sandlot baseball field where the pilot warned the children of the attack. This similarity is shown when, “The [Japanese] tail gunner waves at the kids below, warning them to take cover before bombs begin to fall” (Robert Sullivan, Daniel S. Levy). Also the main characters are based on actual men and their actions. The main characters, Rafe McCawley and Danny Walker, are based on George Welch and Kenneth Taylor who were two of the few pilots that were able to become airborne and engage the Japanese attackers.
Pearl Harbor and the attacks on the world trade centers on September 11, 2001 also known as 9/11 were both events where thousands of innocent lives were taken at the hands of foreign attackers that entered our country.

The quake ran down the San Andreas fault for 296 miles. The total damage estimation is $500,000,000 and very little of that is from the earthquake directly(history.com). Much of the destruction originated from fire. Many small fires across San Francisco grew into very large fires that demolished the city. The fires obliterated 490 city blocks, a total of 25,000 buildings leaving over 250,000 homeless (eyewitnesshistory) and, websites are conflicted but estimate the loss of 450 to 3,000 lives.
