December 8th declared war on Japan

December 11th declared war on Germany and Italy.

On a side note, we were the only country that Germany formally declared war upon, before they attacked them. All others, Poland, the Netherlands, France, etc, Germany attacked first, then declared war.

Maybe the world would have been different if Germany attacked us before they declared war, Hitler was batting a 1000 before we entered the war.
