This unprecedented legislation granted a formal apology from the United States government and monetary reparations to surviving persons of Japanese ancestry whose constitutional rights were violated during World War II. Many years in the making, the Japanese American veterans of WWII had an impact on this journey to achieve this legislation.

Focusing on several important stories, H.R.442: Nisei Veterans and the Fight for Civil Liberties highlights the contributions from battlefields to justice made by Nisei veterans such as Senator Spark Matsunaga, Senator Daniel Inouye, and Kazuo Masuda.
