United Kingdom and Ireland in The White House-Photo 9

Shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill visited the White House to meet with President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In addition to planning Allied strategy, Churchill took part in the annual lighting of the National Christmas Tree on the South Grounds of the White House on Christmas Eve. Both Churchill and Roosevelt delivered inspiring Christmas remarks, helping to assure the American public as the country entered World War II.
