Pearl Harbor: 64 Years Ago

Pearl Harbor: 64 Years Ago
Publish date:

Four years have passed since 9/11 and most Americans can probably still tell you exactly where they were when they first heard the news.
Dec. 7 is the 64th anniversary of an event that seared another generation's memory. Many Americans learned about Pearl Harbor from the radio.
The day after the attack, the Library of Congress sent archivists around the country to record the thoughts and fears of citizens. Sound Portraits has an audio documentary.
