Sunday, August 19, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Join us at the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery:

We’ll tell you about the farmers, the merchants, and the soldiers from the 100th Battalion and 442nd Infantry Regiment, who fought to free Europe while their relatives were in camps back home. The tour is free. The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95818.
