On December 8, 1941 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated: "Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan." The United States had now entered World War II.

Historian Jim Gibbons will take you through the second of two of the most catastrophic wars in our nation's history, World War II at the Lou Sherman Community Center in Steger June 10th at 7:00 PM. Gibbons will highlight significant events that thrust the United States into this unwanted war.

These unfolding events include: Germany, Italy, and Japan's mad, manipulative race to power; the bombing of Pearl Harbor, London, Warsaw, Stalingrad, and Leningrad; and the seizing of Paris. Gibbons will show how the United States, Great Britain, and Russia united together to bring down and eventually destroy these Axis Powers.

President Franklin Roosevelt words shall be unfolded before your eyes. Roosvelt stated, "No matter how long it make take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory!"
