Impact of American Revolution through time Almost all aspects of the lives of Americans were somehow affected by the spirit of the American Revolution. The attitudes of American people towards religious life, women’s rights, voting and slavery were changed forever because of it. There was a drastic change in social and political life after independence. There were significant changes in the hierarchy within the states. The American society became more egalitarian and less deferential, more meritocratic and less aristocratic.
Pearl Harbor was the beginning of America's involvement in World War II, marking the bombings' significance. Japan had many different motives for attacking Pearl Harbor instead of a different location. This event created tension between the two countries and even today some Americans still treat the Japanese horribly even after they became allies. However, the attack on Pearl Harbor was a huge turning point for countries concerned with world power. This is shown through the attacks made by Japan to gain power, the attack caused America to get involved in the war and America could have avoided these attacks.
The battle of Pearl Harbor was a brutal surprise attack on the United states Pacific fleet and it was the kickoff point for the US to join World War II. Its something we should never forget. Pearl Harbor was one of the most memorable events in the history of the United states. When Japan attacked the US Pacific fleet it was totally unexpected on this Sunday morning December 7, 194. Japan wanted to attack Pearl Harbor because it was afraid the US would be able to attack from the Pacific.
However, America once did the very thing it is disdainful of. In WWII, Americans discriminated against Japanese American citizens. In the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, America hastily took the rights of Japanese Americans by placing them in Japanese Internment Camps, where atrocious conditions destroyed a culture’s faith in the Land of the Free. On December 7, 1941, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes stealthily attacked an American naval base on the coast of Honolulu, Hawaii. Lasting just over two hours, the Japanese destroyed nearly 20 vessels, 8 large battleships, and over 300 fighter planes.
Even then we were still picking up memories of Pearl Harbor a year later. December 7, 1941 is a date of horror. It killed many people, destroyed airplanes, ships, submarines, and much more. They attacked us because we stopped selling important supplies to them that they needed. Thousands of lives were taken from us but none of them died for nothing.
“Yesterday, December 7,1941 --- a date which will live in infamy- the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.” - Franklin Roosevelt. December 7th 1941. When Japanese bombers made a bombing run in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii sinking two ships. The USS Arizona taking down 1,117 with it, The USS Oklahoma went down as well taking 429 crew members with it. Overall 2403 people died by this surprise from the nation of the rising sun.
The outcome might have been worse after the war if the United States decided to execute the emperor because there were still people in Japan who worship him as if he is their god. The democratization was also crucial in the maintenance of the international order because there is less risk that nations fight against each other if both countries are democratic. Therefore, the United States needed to make Japan a democratic country to prevent Japan to become its
In this case, the court ruled that the evacuation order which was violated by Korematsu was valid, and although “The constitutional issues should be addressed… it is clear that the “martial necessity arising from the danger of espionage and sabotage” warranted the military evacuation order.” As stated by Justice Frankfurter. In opposing thoughts, The Dissenting opinion written by Justice Jackson reads, "Korematsu ... has been convicted of an act not commonly thought a crime. It consists merely of being present in the state whereof he is a citizen, near the place where he was born, and where all his life he has lived.” Although this court case was finalized with Fred Korematsu being guilty, this case has sparked interest in the minds of thousands and whether they agree or disagree I will always agree with the second ruling. I do not see their plan of segregating the Japanese-Americans beneficial, due to the fact most of them have lived here their whole life. American citizens were made to be free and this order has done nothing but strip the citizens of their own
My grandfather was a Chief in the United States Navy for 21 years, and he talked about how horrific this attack was. He wrote in a letter that the attack began around 7:45 A.M. My grandmother was the one that woke him, because being in the military the shots didn’t bother him. When he woke up he looked outside, and saw the torpedo’s hitting the ground across the road from his house. The Japanese then began an all-day attack on the Philippines just three hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Japanese also attempted a surprise attack on Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Thailand.
While they would sometimes have an overall positive effect on society, they so often had as much of a negative impact on society as they did a positive one. In Europe, the French Revolution and the Revolutions of 1848 had such great impacts on their countries and neighboring countries
