Question: What did America do after the bombing of Pearl Harbor?

Japanese Americans from the West Coast were sent to internment camps for the duration of the war.

The attack on Pearl Harbor left more than 2,400 Americans dead and shocked the nation, sending shockwaves of fear and anger from the West Coast to the East. The following day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt addressed Congress, asking them to declare war on Japan, which they did by an almost-unanimous vote.

What did the US do immediately after the Pearl Harbor attack?

ON DECEMBER 21, 1941, only two weeks after Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt, intent on bolstering Americas battered morale, summoned his armed forces commanders to the White House to demand a bombing raid on Japan as soon as possible.

The Allies dropped 2.7 million tons of bombs on Germany, and the United States dropped seven million tons on Vietnam. President Roosevelt had the right idea: days after Pearl Harbor, he called for the Japanese homeland to be bombed in retaliation.
