Unforgettable moments in American history
Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, will mark the 72nd anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, which occurred on Dec. 7, 1941 — "a date which will live in infamy" as President Franklin Roosevelt so memorably declared.
Most Americans who were alive on the day Pearl Harbor was bombed remember exactly where they were when they first heard the news.
This event changed the course of the country, and the course of individual lives.
The U.S. has several unforgettable moments that caused course changes for us as a country and made each of us take a moment and reflect on life.
None of these moments is perhaps as impactful as the bombing of Pearl Harbor, but all had major impact on us as a nation.
For those alive during each of these events, most will remember exactly where they were when they heard about the event.
