  • After the attack on Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt issued an executive order to move all Japanese-Americans to internment camps. It did not matter if they were U.S. citizens or new immigrants everyone went and lost their homes, jobs, and sometimes their lives in these poor conditions.   
  • When FDR made a speech after the Pearl Harbor attack, he asked Congress to go to war. The American people were supportive of this request because they didn't want surprise attacks like this to continue.  
  • Today there is a memorial located above the wreckage of the sunken USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor Hawaii. It houses all the names of the members of the Navy who lost their lives during the horrible event.
