IHI / AHM Symposium – Pearl Harbor: Inevitable or Infamy?

December 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am, ending 4:00 pm

On December 7th, 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 December 7th, 1941. The history that leads to this pivotal moment and its aftermath continues to affect our world’s nations, democracies, and civic order.

The American Heritage Museum will host an extraordinary symposium called “Pearl Harbor – Inevitable or Infamy.” During this exclusive day-long discussion we will explore what lead up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the major battles that ensued and its aftermath.

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.
