Battery C Flag

Date:
c. 1864

In 1838 Battery C, 3rd Regiment, commanded by Captain Samuel Ringgold became the first artillery battery to receive horses so that every soldier was mounted. Commonly known as a flying battery because of their capability for rapid movement, Ringgold's battery was soon followed by three other batteries, one from each of the four artillery regiments. The flying batteries played a decisive role in winning the Mexican War battle honors. Around the edge, the flag honors the Battery's service during the battles of Palo Alto, Resaca de la Palma, Buena Vista, and Monterey. Read more »

Exclusion Orders

Date:
11-Apr-42
Creator:
Dorothea Lange

Taken in San Francisco, CA. "On a brick wall beside air raid shelter poster, exclusion orders were posted at First and Front Streets directing removal of persons of Japanese ancestry from the first San Francisco section to be affected by evacuation. The order was issued April 1, 1942, by Lieutenant General J. L. DeWitt, and directed evacuation from this section by noon on April 7, 1942. Evacuees will be housed in War Relocation Authority Centers for the duration." Following the signing of Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942, signs like this one were posted in neighborhoods all over the West Coast. Japanese Americans' lives were about to change forever.
