Overnight on February 24-25, 1942, the Axis powers attacked Los Angeles, California. Or at least the locals thought they did.
A Japanese submarine had attacked the United States mainland near Santa Barbara, California, the day before. Nervous that they might be next, Los Angeles civil defense forces panicked when inconclusive reports indicated that there might be enemy aircraft headed towards the city. L.A. was blacked out, and anti-aircraft flak filed the sky until dawn.
In the light of the following day, no one was sure what they had been shooting at during the "Battle of Los Angeles." There was no clear evidence of any aircraft, and not a single bomb had been dropped on the city. The Secretary of the Navy declared the entire event a false alarm.
Naturally, this has led to conspiracy theories about cover-ups and aliens. But no one has ever said anything about time travelers caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
