"Avenge Ellwood" : The Japanese Attack on California
This event has expired

(Always Call to Verify Dates & Times)
   Goleta Valley Historical Society will host a special display commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Ellwood shelling. The exhibit will be on view from February 19-December 30, 2012.
   On February 23, 1942 a large Japanese submarine identified as the I-17, surfaced at sundown off Ellwood Mesa and fired its deck cannon at the tidelands oil-production facilities clustered along the shore. The shelling followed the attack on Pearl Harbor, which plunged the United States into World War II.
   The "Avenge Ellwood" logo was created in early 1943 for a war bond drive led by the 4th Santa Barbara War Savings Committee and the American Women's Voluntary Services. The image was used in newspapers, posters, and by local businesses who had donated to the cause. The money raised went directly to the purchase of a bomber plane and fighter plane that would boast the names"Flying Santa Barbaran" and "Ellwood Avenger." Like many WWII propaganda posters, the artist is unknown and the image was not copyrighted.
