The battleships of the Pacific Fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7th, 1941, arrived there from the West Coast in May 1940, for annual maneuvers. President Roosevelt ordered the fleet to remain at Pearl as a deterrent against possible Japanese aggression. Before that, the battleships of the Pacific Fleet were based 2,500 miles away at San Pedro Bay, Long Beach.
