U.S. Oil/Steel Embargo on Japan
We're going to have to do something about them.
Attack on Pearl harbor
Japan invaded Eastern China to help itself from it's de[ression. This got other countries mad because China was being good and not attacking people.
What Was Left
The US didn't like Japan attacking other countries so they decided to stop selling oil and steel to Japan. This essentealy stoped them from producing war stuff, making Japan either stop or go really quick.
"Date That Will Live In Infamy"
WE WILL REMEMBER THIS DAY WITH SORROW!
Since the US might try to stop Japan, Japan thought is was a good idea to strike first to stop the US before the US started. This led to the bombing of Peark Harbor and the US getting angry.
After the bombing the US declared war. the only reason they were able to do this was because Japan missed the US's aircraft carriers which were more important that battleshibs anyway.
1... 2... You missed a few...
This is when President Roosevelt declared that this date will be remembered by the Americans. This is when all of the US got alerted about what Japan did. THis is when the entirety of the US got either mad or scared.
Hawaiins had a lot of stuff hapen. First, the whole state was basicly turned into a military base. Secondly, all of the Japanesee-Americans got detained because they might be spies. Lastly, Hawaiin travel was completely shut down, baracades were put up on the beaches.
