80-G-413507 Chart of Pearl Harbor

Photo #: 80-G-413507  Pearl Harbor Attack
Description: 7 December 1941 Chart of Pearl Harbor recovered from a Japanese midget submarine captured after the attack. The chart shows various courses around Ford Island and gives ship locations which do not necessarily correspond to actual 7 December ship positions. Since it presumably came from the midget submarine HA-19, which was unsuccessful in its attempts to enter the harbor, these details probably represent expected ship locations and intended maneuvers by the submarine. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
Catalog #: 80-G-413507
