Roosevelt's 'Infamy' Speech Digitized
Even those who weren't alive on December 7, 1941, know that it was "a date which will live in infamy." That was how President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously described Japan's attack on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor to a Joint Session of Congress the next day. It's one of the most famous of all American political speeches.
Thanks to a newly released digital version of the bound Congressional Record covering the years 1941-1950, that address and all of Congress' other debates and proceedings during that span, are now available for the public to view on smartphones, tablets, laptops and personal computers.
