Maritime Museum Features Online Speaker Series

Oxnard, CA – Interesting and captivating speakers are usually scheduled every third Wednesday at the Channel Islands Maritime Museum, 3900 Bluefin Circle, Oxnard. But due to Covid-19 the series has gone online. The next speaker is scheduled for August 19 – Steve Lund – “Japanese Submarines Attack America’s West Coast During WWII,” at 7:00 PM.

Synopsis: Most Central Coast residents are aware of the Japanese shelling of Goleta shortly after the outbreak of World War II. But few are aware of the submarine-borne campaign that involved attacks on ships along the coast and bombing forests in Oregon to spread panic and the opening weeks of the war. The panic the attacks cause resulted in the famous “Battle of Los Angeles” and the internment of 110,000 Japanese-American citizens.
