(LOUISVILLE) - It has been 70 years since planes of the Imperial Japanese Navy circled the skies of Pearl Harbor.

On the morning of December 7, 1941, more than 350 Japanese aircraft attacked in two waves, crippling the U.S. Pacific Fleet at the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, destroying more than 180 U.S. planes. More than 2,403 Americans were killed and another 1,178 wounded.

Rex Knight, a Lawrence County resident, is partnering with Louisville's Frazier History Museum to stage a major exhibition titled "A Morning That Changed the World: Personal Stories of Pearl Harbor."

The exhibit, featuring Knight's 16-year collection of artifacts, begins October 25 and runs through April 16. Knight's collection contains approximately 100 pieces representing nearly 40 individuals that captures the stories of people who were there.

The museum, at 829 W. Main St. in Louisville is dedicating 4,000 square feet of space to the exhibit. For further information, call (502) 753-1037.
