73 years ago today at 3:30 Berlin time the  German charge d’affaires gave the American Secretary of State a declaration of war and the United States was officially brought into World War II. Adolf Hitler did not like President Roosevelt’s degrading of the German ideology and wanted to “beat America to the punch” before they declared war first.
