Hail to the Chief: Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of the U.S.

Yesterday, December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy, the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked!”

On January 6, 1942 Franklin Delano Roosevelt , 32nd President of the United States addressed the nation—his first State of the Union speech after the attack on Pearl Harbor and the declaration of war: ”We are fighting today for security, for progress, and for peace, not only for ourselves but for all men. . .”
