AHM Presentation: Remembering Pearl Harbor and U.S. Entry Into WWII

December 7, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$10 – $20

Join us at the American Heritage Museum for a compelling talk about the attack on Pearl Harbor and the United States’ entry into WWII. Hosted by American Heritage Museum President Rob Collings and Lead Docent Colin Rixon, we will discuss “the day that will live in infamy.” The motivations of Japan to attack Pearl Harbor,  how they executed the raid and its aftermath will be covered.

We will also highlight the history of our Curtiss P-40B Tomahawk and Waco UIC aircraft currently on display. The P-40 Tomahawk is the last flying fighter that survived the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Waco UIC was operated by the first American civilian casualty of WWII, Bob Tyce. He was killed by a strafing Japanese Zero fighters at John Rogers airfield in Hawaii.
