The Pearl Harbor Attack: A Lasting Legacy 80th Anniversary Special Remembrance Lecture

Overview

The surprise attack on the American naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941, was a watershed event in American and world history.

The attack on Pearl Harbor was a one and a quarter hour military encounter and served as a catalyst for both immediate and long-term actions that transformed the world far beyond the expectations of the military planners and national leaders involved at the time.

Speaker Bob Carlson will explore the attack itself, its aftermath in a broad sweep of WWII, and its legacy extending now 80 years later. Time will be allowed for an open discussion at the end of the presentation. Bob holds a Master's Degree in history and is currently retired from a career in health care and human resources. He is also on the Midway Village Museum Board of Directors.

Advance registration is online or purchase tickets at the Front Desk. Museum Members should call the museum and speak to a Front Desk representative to make your reservation to attend.

This presentation will also be available via Zoom technologies for those wishing to attend virtually with the link sent the morning of the lecture.
