    Part of my collection includes a massive 4 binder scrapbooks of headlines/clippins that was done during the war. I have know idea who did it but I thought I would start a thread matching our current date as much as possible. I think it might be an interesting way to see the headlines from the US side. Feedback is appreciated. Starting with 12/23/41

    Merry Christmas 12/25/41
    The Atlanta is commissioned at the NY Navy Yard in Brooklyn - Atlanta served in this capacity in the naval battles Midway and the Eastern Solomons. Atlanta was heavily damaged by Japanese and friendly gunfire in a night surface action on 13 November 1942 during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. The cruiser was sunk on her captain's orders in the afternoon of the same day.

    1/8/42 & 1/9/42 Wake Island

    When Wake Island fell 1,600-plus Americans were captured , 1,100 of them civilian contractors of construction conglomerate Morrison Knudsen there to build a naval base. Most of these, and all military personnel, were shipped to POW camps in China early in 1941; only 700 would survive.

    By the following September there were only 98 Americans left on the island. Since being captured they had been forced to build defensive fortifications against a suspected American invasion. In October of 43 the Japanese fearing an invasion was imminent massacred the 98 POWs. Even though the island had repeatedly been bombed by the Americans there were no planned invasions for Wake Island.
