The magazine of the USS Shaw Exploding on December 7th, 1941
Our country largely ignored the 72nd anniversary of the unprovoked sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. The nation was just not concerned. It was the same with the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, and the sesquicentennial of the War for Southern Independence as well. No attention paid by our national leaders. Ignore history at your peril. There is a foolish, dimwitted, and short sighted view of history which professes the idea any history before the civil rights movement of the 1960s is irrelevant. This is stupid, inaccurate, and dangerous in the extreme. I suppose, like so many other things, our leaders and education system are to blame. If you don’t understand history, you can’t understand and appreciate America and Freedom.
