On December 7th, 1941 a surprise Japanese attack on an American Naval base at Pearl Harbor, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, killed more than 2,400 and devastated the fleet stationed there.

In a speech the following day, President¬†Franklin D. Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy,” and declared war on the Japanese, drawing the United States into World War II. Watch his speech in video below.
