After the attack China declared war on Japan on December 9,1942. Franklin D. Roosevelt wanted the United States to be apart of this so he asked Congress to announce war against Japan to the American people. Eventually, Germany,Italy,Bulgaria,Hungary, and Romania issued war on the U.S. Because so many countries were involved this was the start of WW11. But because we lost so much oil and rubber, it would be a challenge for America to stand a chance against all of our opponents.
Predictably, the bill’s impact was most dramatic in the Deep South. In Mississippi, for instance, where less than 7 percent of African Americans qualified to vote in 1964, 59 percent were on voter rolls by 1968. By 1975, approximately 1.5 million African Americans had registered to vote in the South"(U.S. House of Representatives). With
They completed their desire and made themselves look strong (at the moment) and killed many Americans. But in the end, the United States went and declared war on Japan, and the United States had won the WWII war. Japan may have looked strong for a while and they may have had Germany and Italy as their allies, but the United States came back with Great Britain, France, and Russia. So, in all, there is an agreement with President Franklin D. Roosevelt that they day Pearl Harbor attack will be “a day which will live in infamy” and hopefully the readers agree as well, and received the answers to the questions they had on why Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.

Japanese Internment (Executive Order 9066) Have you ever thought what happened back then,why war happened so much? Well there is one war there is one war I learned about, it’s the bombing of Pearl Harbor. This was mostly a between Japan and America. Also the united States not trusting the Japanese Americans and putting them into 10 different internment camps because of the bombing.

At first, the battleship USS Maine had no hostility, but until the Maine exploded at 9:40 pm on February 15, 1898 in Havana Harbor. There was 260 American naval personnel be killed on that ship. There was difference explanation of the explosion. Some people stated that the Maine was hit or blown up by the Spanish Navy, however, others said that the ton coal bunker exploded. In 1898, the navy said it was sunk by a water mine, but declare that the tragedy may be anyone’s responsibility and that we cannot fix the problem now.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the 32nd president of the United States and attended Columbia Law School as well as Harvard University. During his presidency, the United States was blindsided by a malicious attack from Japanese forces at Pearl Harbor. In his address to the Nation speech that followed, he effectively convinces the American people and Congress that war on Japan is the best option by using strong word choice and a sense of nationalism to draw emotion from his audience. These appeals to pathos, along with integrating a clear call-to-action for the American people, creates an effective argument for his speech.
Especially the second type, as evidence suggests that the Japanese were already defeated. Bombing and killing the innocent people shouldn’t ever be justified, however, it was a war and the American government did warn the Japanese about the consequences of continuing the fight. On August 6, 1945, the atomic bomb enriched with uranium, coded “Little boy”, was dropped over the Japanese city of Hiroshima. The project was coded ‘Trinity’ when the first and only testing of ‘Little boy’ was on July 16th, 1945, near Alamogordo, New Mexico.
On Monday, December eighth, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt made a speck, asking Congress to declare war on
This explosion finally made the Americans want to go to war, and so the United States decided to get involved. On April 25, 1898, the United States officially went to war with Spain to help Cuba. Instead of the battles being fast and right away, the United States was hesitant and patient. After multiple articles from Hearst and Pulitzer exposing the horrors in Cuba and the rumors about the explosion of the U.S. Mains, America finally got involved in the Spanish American
As the war escalated, public pressure increased to enlist black women. Finally, shortly after the Armistice, 18 black Red Cross nurses were offered Army Nurse Corps assignments. Assigned to Camp Grant, Illinois, and Camp Sherman, Ohio, they lived in segregated quarters and cared for German prisoners of war and black soldiers. Cessation of hostilities halted plans to assign black nurses to Camp Dodge, Camp Meade, Fort Riley, and Camp Taylor. By August 1919, all black nurses had been released from service as the nursing corps was reduced to their peacetime levels.
The Japanese had plans of evading neighboring nation, and wanted to prevent the United States from interfering. They saw the U.S. navy as a threat since they had most of their fleet stationed at Hawaii. On December 7, 1941 the Japanese fleet launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in aim to strike a devastating blow to the U.S. fleet. The Japanese where successful in crippling the U.S. navy, but did not damage or sink their aircraft carriers.

Roosevelt. It was December 7, 1941 when the United States was deliberately attacked by air and naval forces of Japan. The Japanese targeted Pearl Harbor which is located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The Japanese naval forces caught America completely off guard. The Americans believed that the harbor was too shallow for an attack by torpedoes dropped from airplanes because the required depth for it to be possible is about 75 feet and Pearl Harbor is approximately 45 feet deep.
On December 7th of 1941, an attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese changed the course of history of the United States and the world. This attack on an American naval facility claimed a staggering 2,403 lives and wounded 1,178 others forcing the United States’ formal entrance into World War II. I was very fortunate to visit and participate in a South Washington County ISD 833 group band performance at this historic site, in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. While visiting this monument, I learned about the significance of this International aggression on the American soil. This attack symbolized a threshold point for Americans from just offering support to the Europeans to becoming actively involved in the war.
