World War II is often depicted as the good war, the best war ever, fought by Americas greatest generation. With a considerable amount of emphasis placed on sacrifice and patriotism, many historians have concluded that this war represents the great shining moment in American history where the nation placed the needs of others first and endured years of hardship to destroy National Socialism in Europe and Japanese militarism in the Pacific Rim. Yet Roger Daniels provides an alternative scenario. Based on the evidence in his text, why did the United States create the War Relocation Authority and forcibly intern approximately 100,000 Japanese Americans during World War II? Do you agree with this decision? Does the federal government have the right to suspend civil liberties during a national emergency, or on the other hand, should the Constitution be upheld regardless of the circumstances?
