The attack on Pearl Harbor brought a quiet nation to its feet. At this time in history no one was going to hurt another American while the nation sat back and watched. Everyone jumped in to help wherever they could. The men lined up to enlist in the war, the women went to the factories to fill the men's shoes, and eventually making the equipment and machinery they needed to fight the war. Wives and daughters kept businesses open til the men returned.
