WWII Japanese Internment Camp quest

Between 1942 and 1945, approximately 117,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly relocated and incarcerated in 10 camps scattered throughout the western United States.

This was an important episode in American history and seems more relevant in today’s vitriolic political discussion around immigration, so it seemed like I should visit all 10 of the camps—or what remains of them today.

I’ve currently been to 8 of the 10.
