Add comment on:Army Corps publishes Mormon Island Relocation Cemetery Files ~ just not for too long...
U.S. Army Corp Press Release
The authentic primary source documentation, once again is hidden. Fundamental documents that pre-date and provides authorization for construction of Folsom Dam remains "unavailable." The current pubic works project to retrofit Folsom Dam is a multi-billion dollar notion over many years to come... yet, allocation to share authentic history of Negro Hill and the surrounding region is far too difficult. U.S. and California Historic Preservation clearly does not apply to people of African Ancestry in Gold Rush California. Mormon Island Relocation Cemetery is a living example of ongoing systemic institutional racism and probable hate crimes against humanity. The 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation in Historic Negro Hill, California established in 1848 may provide a spark to bring truth to light.
