Join American History TV for a special look at the December 7th, 1941 Japanese attack on American military forces at Pearl Harbor -- the day that President Franklin D. Roosevelt said would “live in infamy.” We’ll hear first-person accounts from servicemen and civilians, take a tour of the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, and see archival footage of the attack and its devastating aftermath.
We’ll bring you highlights throughout the day from a conference convened this week by the National Park Service at Pearl Harbor.
At 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., watch the 70th Anniversary Commemorative Ceremony overlooking the USS Arizona Memorial -- held at Pearl Harbor this December 7th.
And we’ll take your calls . . .
