What really happened at Pearl Harbor? Program at Henderson Library | Events
The Friends of the Henderson County Public Library invite the public to “What Really Happened at Pearl Harbor?” a free program on Thursday, October 18 at 7 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church (across the street from the library).
In the years since the “day in infamy” in 1941, no less than nine investigation have attempted to get the facts on how the Japanese managed to totally surprise the United States Navy. Despite these studies, the attack still remains shrouded in mystery.
One indisputable fact is that Henderson native Husband E. Kimmel was in command of the Pacific Fleet on that December morning and subsequently took the brunt of the blame. In this talk, Kentucky Humanities Council speaker, Ronald Elliott follows Kimmel’s rise through the ranks in his outstanding naval career, presents some of the lesser-known aspects of the attack, and highlights Admiral Kimmel’s side of the story.
Refreshments will be served. For more information please visit www.hcpl.org or call the library at 826-3712.
