The Gilder Lehrman Collection contains materials relating to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, including photographs, news announcements, speeches, and personal reflections. Join us on December 3 as we discuss some of these primary sources and how they can be used to encourage students to discover history for themselves. Why was this item created? Are primary sources biased? What can we learn from a close examination of these documents?
