East Liverpool Historical Society

An event that would have a major impact on East Liverpool, Ohio as well as the rest of the nation as fathers, sons, brothers and uncles would be going off to war.

Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, Sunday, December 7, 1941


We would be interested in hearing from anyone in the ELO area who was present at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941 and would be interested in sharing their experiences here. Anyone who has pictures of that day. Also, those who were in the ELO area on that day and would like to share their memories of what it was like here on that day. Contact us here




Good Afternoon Mr. Brookes and Mr. Allison,

I teach 6th grade history, and was pleased to find some excellent World War II information on your page (www.eastliverpoolhistoricalsociety.org/dec7.htm). I thought you might find it interesting to hear that I recently assigned a project where my students were able to pick a theme in American history and present a report based on their findings, although it was really about getting the kids comfortable with researching online and using the computer lab. However, one of my students actually chose World War II for his project and used an excellent article called, "The Cars, Tanks and Airplanes of WWII". Alex really impressed me with how seriously he took the assignment, and I could see the interest spark while he was presenting. I've included the article below, if you'd like to review.

I'd like to do something encouraging for this student, in particular. He has struggled a bit in my class this year and I've found that our small actions, as educators, sometimes have the power to impact our student's views of themselves. So I wondered if you would you consider including Alex's resource here? If you find you are able to add it, please do let me know! I would like to show him that he's also capable of helping others to learn through his hard work.

Thank you very much for your time, Timothy - I'm looking forward to hearing what you think about the suggestion.


Mr. Christian
