    Hi Everyone -

    Please join us for the next in our regular monthly series of free Department of the Interior Library Park Ranger Speaker Series lectures, entitled "A Day Which Will Live in Infamy: The Attack on Pearl Harbor and Its Impact on Washington, DC" on Tuesday, December 17th from 1:00 - 1:45 pm ET in the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building's John Muir Room.

    The story of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the United States entry into the Second World War in early December 1941 is typically told from the Hawaiian perspective. However, the impact of this event stretched well beyond the central Pacific, all the way to the streets of Washington, DC. The attack on our Naval forces in Hawaii shattered the impression that the United States was safe and secure from the violence of foreign wars abroad. The shock reverberated throughout the Nation's Capital on that fateful day, affecting many of the usual activities that would be customary on a crisp Sunday afternoon. Everyone now realized that this conflict could reach our nation's shores, requiring a sense of vigilance and preparedness not seen since the days of the Civil War.

    Please join Park Ranger Eric Pominville as he discusses the attack on Pearl Harbor from the Washington, DC perspective. Explored through a series of vignettes, this program will look at what was going on in the Nations' Capital at the time and how events 4,800 miles away changed how Washingtonians went about their daily lives.
