Pearl Harbor is on the island of Oahu, a part of the Hawaiian Islands. The Navy was given direction to maintain "a coaling and repair station" at the harbor.

1900 - By the time he was just 13 years old, the German physicist Max Planck formulated an energy theory, postulating the existence of "quanta," which lays the groundwork for the quantum theory of modern physics.

Planck won a Nobel Prize in 1918 for his work in theoretical Physics.

1908 - When he was 21 years old, Henry Ford developed the first Model T automobile, often called the Tin Lizzy or flivver.

Previously, cars were the province of the upper class and the introduction of the Model T and its availability changed U.S. culture. Within days of its release, over 15,000 cars had been ordered.
