Two Voices and a Tableau: Pearl Harbor and 9/11

Lesson Overview

The attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 shocked the nation. Citizens and servicemen were caught off guard and left vulnerable to the Japanese attacks. Sixty years later in 2001, the United States endured additional attacks that brought about tremendous grief, trauma, as well as hope for a more unified nation.
