This photograph is often captioned as being from President Rooseveltâ€™s address to Congress on 8 Dec 1941 following the Pearl Harbor Attack (the â€śDay of Infamyâ€ť speech) but this is not likely. The FDR Library says this is not from Dec 1941 but from a State of the Union address in 1941 or 1942, most likely 1941. The 1941 State of the Union address was Rooseveltâ€™s famous â€śFour Freedomsâ€ť speech.
