United Nations

After the Pearl Harbor attack in 1942, 26 countries determined not to repeat the same mistakes of World War I, signed a Declaration by United Nations in Washington D.C. Each country pledged to fight the Axis and not to make any separate peace agreements. FDR, in his many fire-side chats kept referring to these friendly countries as the United Nations.

On April 25, 1945, a conference of 50 countries met in San Francisco and prepared a charter for the United Nations. The U.N. was officially born on October 24 1945.
