Where did the United States get involved in Pearl Harbor?
Brandi, I am not sure what you actually mean. The United States and Hawaii signed a treaty in 1878 permitting the U.S. to establish a coaling and repair station at Pearl Harbor. The U.S. annexed Hawaii in 1898 and established a naval base there in 1908. The U.S. entry into World War II was precipitated by a Japanese attack on the base on Dec. 7, 1941. Does that answer your question or did you want to know something else? Michael Montagne
Pearl Harbor is in Hawaii, which is part of the United States. At the time Pearl Harbor was bombed, the United States had not yet decided to join the war. The United States were neutral. Japan was the country that bombed Pearl Harbor. Japan was an Axis Power. Because of the bombing, the United States decided to join the war. The United States became an Allied Power.
