In February 1942, the realitiies of the second world war were begining to become evident here in the southland, yet many community events continued on almost as if nothing had ever changed.
The Great Los Angeles Air Raid Of 1942 is a fundraiser event for the Fort MacArthur Museum that takes you back in time to a thrillingly faithful recreation of a 1942 big band dance party, interrupted by the reality of war--- THE AIR RAID!
An evening when litterally thousands of people both Military and Civilian were convinced that Los Angeles was being attacked from the air. What really happened that fateful night is a debate that will probably go on for years, but for those of us at the Fort MacArthur Museum, it is a time to remember the feeling of those early days of the war.
