This is hte site of Arboga, where 2,465 Japanese Americans forced from their homes in Placer and Sacramento Counties were incarcerated from May 8 to June 29, 1942, by the United States government.  Four months prior, on February 19, 1942, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed executive order 9066, which unjustifiably ordered the removal of all persons of Japanese ancestry from the west coast.  Henceforth, may consitutional rights be unquestionably upheld in these United States of America.
