The jail house is one of the few remaining structures in the former Tule Lake Internment (concentration) Camp (now part of the Tule Lake Segregation Center) in present day Newell, California, part of the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument.  Constructed by Japanese-American prisoner of war victims during WWII to serve as their own jail, the facility today is boarded over & in slow decay.  This view shows some of the cells of the internees with metal brackes marking where bunk beds were located, as well as a shower in the corner.  Part of a wood stove is visible in the adjacent room, though it is unclear what purpose it served within the jail house.  English & Japanese handwriting can be found inscribed on the walls by some of the internees.  Some statements say, "Show me the way to go to home" & "When the golden sun has sunk beyond the desert horizon, and darkness followed, under a dim light casting my lonesome heart."  This facility is gated off, but can be visited via a scheduled tour with a park ranger guide.

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
