Storyboard Text

  • On December 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii because the U.S. had recently put an embargo on them, and they wanted the U.S. to concede and lift the embargo. This obviously did not work in Japan's favor, and the U.S. entered WW2 at last.
  • Brace yourselves for an incoming airal attack!!!
  • Even before the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the U.S. was already indirectly involved in the war. Through the Lend-Lease Act, the U.S. would "borrow" weapons and supplies to European countries on the Allies' side. During this time, the U.S. was still in isolationism or "staying out of European affairs."
  • To: France
  • Weapons
  • To: Great Britain
  • Supplies
  • In Marietta, industry sparked in GA. Bell Aircraft was a business that built B-29 bomber planes that the U.S. and its allies would use in WW2. The construction of these aircraft was not an easy or quick job. That's why many people were hired, improving GA's economy.
  • Alright, alright, we've got plenty of jobs to go around. These planes aren't going to build themselves.
  • Georgia was a place that was perfect for shipbuilding. There were a multitude of shipyards in Savannah and Brunswick because of GA's proximity to Europe, and its deep-water ports. Ships were also not a task to be completed by a small amount of people. LIberty Ships, or ships that carried supplies overseas, were mostly very huge which would require people to be hired in order to efficiently build them.
  • Richard Russel was very essential to U.S. in WW2. He helped build the United States’ Military, and he was able to bring military bases to Georgia. With the men gone to fight and train for the war, industries like the Shipyards in Savannah/Brunswick and Bell Aircraft in Marietta had many roles occupied by women. Additionally, bases weren't only used to train soldiers, but they were also used to hold POW's (Prisoners of War).
  • I want to see you move those legs, Cadets!!!
  • Carl Vinson was known as "The Father of the Two-Ocean Navy" because he realized that the U.S. needed to expand it's military cover to the West because of the imminent threat of Japan during WW2.
