Presidio Trust

Exclusion: The Presidio's Role in WWII Japanese American Incarceration. During World War II, the Presidio of San Francisco--the Army's Western Defense Command--played a pivotal role in the unjust incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans, purportedly in the name of national security. This special exhibition marks 75 years since Lieutenant General John L. DeWitt issued Civilian Exclusion Orders from the Presidio, and examines the post's little understood part in these events.
