On February 19, 1942 President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Executive Order 9066, authorizing the removal of any or all people from military areas. By June more than 110,00 Japanese Americans were relocated to remote internment camps.
March 1, 1942 was dated as E-Day. This was the date set by the military for the removal of the Japanese immigrants and their descendants from their homes and their placement into an internment camp.
