FDR declares war. (Silent) Several views of Capitol building, crowds outside building and motorcycle police. Int. Senate Chamber, various views. FDR on speakers stand. (sound) FDR speaking, he says that Dec. 7, 1941 is a date which will live in infamy as the day the U.S. was attacked by Japan. Since Japan is such a long distance from Pearl Harbor, it is obvious that the attack was planned and premeditated. As Commander-in-chief of the Army and Navy, the President says he has directed all necessary measures for defense. The U.S. will win. He asks Congress to declare a state of war between the United States and Japan. Opening memorable words of the speech: Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 a date which will live in infamy.
