1. Arboga Assembly Center Marker
This is the 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 constitutional rights be unquestionably upheld in these United States of America.

during World War II. Pursuant to Executive Order 9066 signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, thirteen makeshift detention facilities were constructed at various California racetracks, fairgrounds, and labor camps. These facilities were intended to confine Japanese Americans until more permanent concentration camps, such as those at Manzanar and Tule Lake in California, could be built in isolated areas of the country. Beginning on March 30, 1942, all native-born Americans and long-time legal residents of Japanese ancestry living in California were ordered to surrender themselves for detention.
