Address the Nation Pearl Harbor Biography Description Analysis, and
Evaluation of the Ideas Organization and Delivery Style Franklin Delano Roosevelt (better known as FDR in his time) was born on January 30, 1882 to James Roosevelt and Sara Ann Delano Roosevelt. He was stricken with polio in 1921. He was elected as the 32nd President in 1933. His speaking experience when giving speeches came from the many speeches he gave as President. One thing that helped the speech make a large impact on the people is the fact that Japan was with the Nazis. The speech got America into World War II and made a huge impact on the war. President Franklin D. Roosevelt Historical and
Rhetorical Value By: Jillian Taylor, Macy La Rue, Macey Pieterse, and Andrew Jett In this speech, President Roosevelt
is describing the events of the night before, when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor.
He talks about which islands of the Hawaiian chain that the Japanese air squadrons bombed.
At the end of the speech, President Roosevelt verifies that America can win the war, giving hope to the citizens of the USA. Right after that, he petitions the Congress to declare war against Japan.

I believe that this speech had a very positive and negative effect. It inspired Americans, but at the same time inspired a war. This speech was considered important because the purpose was to declare war. It’s still thought important now because of these reasons: like how to handle something of this matter in the future and how to react. In this speech president Roosevelt is telling us exactly what happened and what actions are going to be enforced. He tells us that “No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in the righteous might will win through to absolute victory!” giving us confidence to proceed with war. Franklin Delano Roosevelt presented the Pearl Harbor speech because of the Pearl Harbor bombings. He presented this speech on December 8, 1941 at Washington D.C. The Audience and Constraints The first audience is the congress of the United States(the people that were in the room).The second audience's are really anybody who has ever read or listened to it on you tube or in your history books . Some of the constraints are that he could not just come out and say "Lets go and bomb Japan!" he had to say it in a professional manner like when he said "A state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.Instead of " We just got into it with Japan." Background Situation -The attack on Pearl Harbor occurred on December 7, 1941.
-The Japanese attacked the United States without warning.
-The attack lasted 110 minutes, from 7:55a.m. until 9:45a.m.
-A total of 2,335 U.S. servicemen were killed and 1,143 were wounded.
-Sixty-eight civilians were also killed and 35 were wounded.
-The Japanese lost 65 men, with an additional soldier being captured.
-Pearl Harbor is on the south side of the Hawaiian island of Oahu and is the home to a U.S. naval base.
-The attack on Pearl Harbor brought the United States into World War II.
-This speech was addressed for the urgent needs to act. President Roosevelt went straight to the point by saying"The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan." He used common English so America could understand from the smallest children to the congress.This was a very tough speech to tell because of the sound in his tone is very agitated and sometimes can be very loud, but I think that it was a appropriate for the situation.

War on Japan Declared. YouTube. N.p., n.d. Web. 29 Apr. 2013. Present Day Relations Japan’s violent and uncalled for attack on Pearl Harbor was very much like the North Korean missile threat.
But unlike Japan, whose missiles actually hit their destination, North Korean missiles landed in water, unable to go all the way to the desired spot.
Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor sparked a war, but the USA is hoping to come back to neutral terms with North Korea.
Just so everyone is not worried, North Korean missiles do not have the potential to reach the United States.
The crash landing in the ocean was only a test according to the news, and the country of North Korea will try again.
After all, the saying is “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” By: Macy LaRue, Macey Pieterse, Jillian Taylor, Andrew Jett
