World War II
Hubbard, William, A map of New-England, being the first that ever was here cut, and done by the best pattern that could be had, which being in some places defective, it made the other less exact: Yet doth it sufficiently show the situation of the country & conveniently well the distances of places.

World War II

The attack on Pearl Harbor was the culmination of a decade of tension between Japan and the US. The Japanese attack unified the nation, ending two years of debate over whether or not the wars in Europe and the Pacific were American’s wars to fight. This seminar will examine America’s involvement in WWII using primary documents from the World War II Core Document Volume.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.
