The most important detail that affected this case is that in December 7th of 1941, Japanese fighter pilots intentionally attacked an American naval base right off of Honolulu, Hawaii. This meant bad news for the United States. According to America’s Best History, On February 19, 1942, The Executive order 9066 is signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, confining 110,000 Japanese Americans, including 75,000 citizens, on the West Coast into relocation camps during World War II. The remains of the first of these detention camps resides in California's Manzanar National Historic Site. These camps would last for three years.

The Destruction of Pearl Harbor There has never been an event that has shaped the American spirit like the 1941 aerial attack made by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Japanese gave a horrific blow to the American Pacific fleet and the Honolulu community by killing more than 1,500 civilians and soldiers. This historic event gave forth a new perspective and idea on preserving the safety of the American nation. In a time of devastating warfare, the pride of American society was to be put to the ultimate test.

Pearl Harbor Research Paper Sunday morning, December 7, 1941 a day America will always remember, the attack on Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii. Eighteen U.S. ships were sunken or badly damaged.

Madeline Stephens US History G1 Gardner 20 March 2015 Justification of the Atomic Bomb Following the end of World War II, debate has risen pertaining to the justification of the use of the atomic bomb. The discussion has revolved specifically around the bombing of Japan, in which the first atomic bomb in history was deployed. The USA dropped two atomic bombs on Japan during the final weeks of the Second World War beginning with a uranium gun-type bomb, Little Boy, on the city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, followed by a plutonium implosion-type bomb, Fat Man, on the city of Nagasaki on August 9,1945.
