Corrected on January 3, 2018
A reference to all Aleut villages being burned as part of a "scorched earth" policy has been removed because not all the villages were, in fact, burned.
A reference to a quote from a video has been removed because the online transcript of that documentary does not include the quote, in which an Army officer purportedly told Aleuts that "y'all look like Japs."
Details about how and when Aleuts were moved from their villages were removed to clarify that they were not all transported at the same time.
A reference to "Excursion Bay" was fixed to say "Excursion Inlet."
The year the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians was established was 1980, not 1988 as originally published.
A correction posted here on Feb. 22 has been removed because it mistakenly stated that President Reagan signed that commission into law. In fact, it was President Carter.
