A new exhibit on display at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum recalls the historic events surrounding the Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor.
The exhibit developed by the staff at the Abilene center includes documents and artifacts from the Eisenhower holdings. This is the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on the U.S. Pacific Fleet, which claimed the lives of 2,400 Americans.
Through December, visitors will be able to view Pearl Harbor posters, buttons, sheet music, commemorative stamps and Japanese military items.
The library and museum are located in Abilene, the boyhood home of Dwight D. Eisenhower, who commanded Allied forces in World War II.
