War And Peace

  1. 1. War and Peace Mortoza Mohammadi
  2. 2.  Seized as an act of war in 1846, governed by the military until 1850, California remained closely connected to the military through the rest of the nineteenth century.  In 1914 the Navy established its Pacific Fleet, supported by growing naval presence in San Diego.  The Second World War formally began on September 1, 1939, when Germany invaded Poland.  The attack on Pearl Harbor on the morning of December 7, 1941, took all the force from the America First movement, already reeling from the anti-Semitic direction it had taken in certain speeches by former Californian Charles Lindbergh.

  3. 3.  The attack on Pearl Harbor threw California, indeed the entire Pacific Coast, into a panic. The Japanese had hit U.S. soil.  Ever since 1900s, a sector of California had been at war with the state’s Japanese immigrants.  The White California movement was gaining strength, and in 1913 the legislature passed the Alien Land Act prohibiting Japanese immigrants from owning land in the state.
