Product Description
Abstract: During World War II, and after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, a naval base in Oahu, Hawaii, Americans became frightened that the Japanese might also bomb the western coast of the United States. They felt that the Japanese Americans living on the Pacific Coast were a threat. In order to protect the United State from sabotage, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, an order that permitted the military to evacuate and incarcerate 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry, most of whom were U.S. citizens or legal permanent resident aliens. Of those, a majority were children, infants, and young adults not yet of voting age.
