    Manzanar National Historic Site
    California Background:
    Manzanar was the first of 10 centers established pursuant to Executive Order 9066, which authorized the Secretary of War to exclude citizens and aliens from certain designated areas as a security measure against sabotage and espionage. Current Status/Interpretation: All 10 centers were assessed by NPS in the mid-1980's and Manzanar was determined to be the best preserved and have the greatest potential as a national park unit. Prior to becoming a national park unit, Manzanar was designated California Historic Landmark No. 850 in 1972, placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1985. Manzanar is protected and will be interpreted as Manzanar National Historic Site established by P.L. 102-248 in 1992. The legislation states that the Historic Site is intended to "provide for the protection and interpretation of historical, cultural, and natural resources associated with the relocation of Japanese Americans during World War II...." Manzanar is intended to preserve and interpret a representative War Relocation Center as an aspect of the nation's Pacific Campaign of World War II. Ongoing activities include a Save America's Treasures grant to restore the perimeter fence, historic entry sign and sentinel posts, repair selected masonry features, complete an interpretive auto tour road adjacent to fence; matching funds were provided through a California State grant. The Manzanar Historic Resource study is being put on the web. The NPS FY 2001 Appropriations include $5,124,000 to establish an Interpretive Center and Headquarters at Manzanar. Construction contracts are to be awarded in late 2001, and the Center is projected to be open to the public in early 2003. Manzanar WEB is

    Teaching American History and Civic Education Americans need to understand our history in order to be engaged and effective citizens in a democratic society. Yet according to the U.S. Department of Education's National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), which tracks both Civics and American History understanding among K-12 students, less than one quarter of America's students are proficient in either subject. On September 17, 2002, President George W. Bush observed the 215th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution by announcing new policies and initiatives to support the teaching of American History and Civics and provide Americans with greater access to some of our country’s national treasures. We the People “We the People,” a new initiative administered by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), includes competitive grant programs and other public programs to support the teaching of American history and civics. At the President's direction, the effort started in 2003 and with a significant, multi-year investment, “We the People” will include the following:

    Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month
    Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month was enacted by Public Law 102-450 on October 28, 1992. The purpose of the law was to honor the achievements of Asian/Pacific Americans and to recognize their contributions to the United States. This recognition was the culmination of Jeanie Jew's efforts in the 1970's to establish Asian Pacific American Heritage Week. Following the United States bicentennial in 1976, Jew realized that Asian Pacific Americans were ". . .were excluded from those stories during celebrations of the country's bicentennial. We were literally ignored even though we were part of building this country." A year later, Jew enlisted the support of Rep. Frank Horton (R-NY) who, along with Rep. Norman Mineta, (D-CA), introduced House Resolution 540. This resolution proclaimed the first ten days of May as Asian Pacific American Heritage Week. Senators Daniel Inouye and Spark Matsunaga introduced similar legislation into the Senate. May was selected for the recognition because two significant events in history took place in that month: Japanese immigrants first arrived in the United States on May 7, 1843, and the transcontinental railroad was completed on May 10, 1869 (Golden Spike Day). Furthermore, since school is still in session during May, educators could capitalize on the opportunity to include APA history into the curriculum.

    Chapter Excerpts

    It's 6:45 A.M., Monday, June 18, 2001. In a cool, darkened control room on Capitol Hill, C-SPAN technician Paul Munson watches the final few minutes of the 619th Booknotes interview. A graphic appears on the bottom of the screen beneath the image of the speaker: Edward Said, author of Reflections on Exile and Other Essays. Making Patriots. How did C-SPAN, so closely identified by the public with live coverage of the U.S. Congress, become this involved with nonfiction books and their authors? It's been an evolution, to be sure, but it began in 1986, when an invitation arrived from Warren Burger, recently retired as chief justice of the United States Supreme Court and supervising a task dear to his heart, the national celebration of the U.S. Constitution's bicentennial. Would I, he inquired, join a group of media executives forming an advisory committee for the national celebration? Interested, as much as anything, in an opportunity to observe the well-known chief justice up close, I agreed. In one of our sessions, Chief Justice Burger spoke to the group of the enormous odds that had faced the writers of the Constitution two hundred years earlier. "If you want to get a better understanding of what it was like for them, read this," he advised, handing us copies of Catherine Drinker Bowen's 1966 classic
