The Great Los Angeles Air Raid of 1942 is the museums celebration of one of the most fascinating and controversial events in Los Angeles History. A night when literally thousands of people both Military and Civilian were convinced that Los Angles was being attacked from the air, and even from space!!! What really happened that 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.
In February 1942, the realities of the second world war was just starting to
become evident here is the southland, and many community events continued on
almost like nothing had ever changed. The Great LA Air Raid of 1942 is a
fundraiser for the Fort MacArthur Museum and attempts to recreate the atmosphere
of a 1942 social evening out, interrupted by the reality of war.
