    Japanese American families and individuals, dressed for travel and accompanied by US soldiers, walk up the dock to board a ferry in Eagle Harbor.

    Description from MOHAI:
    On March 30, 1942, the United States Army removed the over 200 Japanese American residents from their homes and businesses on Bainbridge Island and escorted them to the ferry. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that the forced removal was peaceful. The incarcerees, most of whom were American citizens, continually professed their loyalty to the United States and gave that loyalty as the reason for their cooperation. This March 30, 1942 photo shows Japanese American men, women and children walking to the ferry which would take them from Bainbridge Island. They were allowed to take with them only what they could carry.
