President Franklin Roosevelt and his defense cabinet discuss retaliation plans for the Pearl Harbor attack. He urges them to strike the heart of Japan and not to give up or give in. When they claim his request is not possible, he stands up out of his wheelchair to illustrate that it can be done.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt gives his famous speech to Congress following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. At the end of his speech, he asks Congress to declare war against Japan, which officially brings the United States into World War II.
