Story Map Setting: December 1942–April 1972,The California cities of Long Beach, Los Angeles, Manzanar, and San Jose Major characters: Jeanne, Mama, Papa Conflict:The overriding conflict in the story is the loss of freedom that Japanese Americans experience in the internment camps.

Formal Business Letter Troy Gill 777 river street December 31, 1942 Dear Mr. President, I am writing you this letter today to inform you about the japanese concentration camps and my opinion on them. I am a interviewer who interviewed japanese in the camp from little children to old woman and man. I couldn't believe this was happening to them. First off, these japanese have nothing to do with the war with Japan they're just trying to live the "American Dream". Second off, they are living in poorly conditions, six people in one small room is crazy. Third off, there are riots going on with killings of children and young teens. It shouldn't have to be like this would have they done wrong? I am writing this letter to you as a very concerned United States citizen. This should be stop as soon as possible. Ask yourself this, What if that was Americans in the concentration camps?
