History Presentation: the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal
November 16th, 6:30 PM

“The Diamond Anniversary of the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal:
34 minutes that changed the course of the War in the Pacific”

 Join us for a look back in history, presented by Bob MacPherson, Chief Warrant Officer U.S. Navy (Retired.)

 Almost a year after the deadly surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, American forces were holding on
to the tiny island of Guadalcanal in a life or death struggle. If the Japanese could retake the island, they
would control the skies, and their Imperial Fleet could pummel the remaining American Navy at will.

 The only thing that stood between defeat at the hands of the Japanese battle fleet and victory
was an under gunned collection of older American cruisers and destroyers.
This Battle demonstrated the complete courage in battle from officers and men of the United States Navy.

 This event is free and open to the public. Please call 724.446.9940 or email mailto:sewickley@wlnonline.orgto register.

 Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
