On December 8 ,1941 President Roosevelt declared war on Japan after Japan had bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7 , 1941. A few days later on December 11 , 1941 Italy and Germany declared war on the United States.
In February 1942 President Roosevelt ordered over 127,000 Americans with Japanese ancestry to go live in internment camps for the rest of World War two. It was like prison for them, they all had to eat together in communal mess halls and they had to live in simple barracks.
Before the Japanese Americans went to the internment camps they had to get rid of their assets. They sold their stores , houses, farms and cars. Those who didn't sell wouldn't be sure their belonging would still be there when they returned from the prison camps. And those who did sell were in such a hurry that their things were sold at a price less then their value.
In Tuskegge , Alabama there was a group of African American pilots who were college educated and all got a 95 or better on their pilot test. But they never got sent out to fly until Eleanor Roosevelt had proved they were good pilots, so they went and flew the bomber planes.
Women also played in role in helping with the war. They worked in the factories building tanks , ships, ammunition , and guns. If the women wouldn't have gone to work in the factories the necessities for war wouldn't have been produced.
The war had ended in August of 1945 when Japan surrendered after U.S dropped a bomb on Hiroshima on August 6th and another one on Nagasaki on August 9th. The bombs had ended the war but hundreds of thousands of people died and were injured.
