  • Description
  • The American Legion No. 37 located in Montesano, Washington, writes to Washington State Senator Miles Poindexter to express their disapproval of aliens, or immigrants, who applied for American citizenship then requested exemption from service in World War I because of their non-resident status. The Legion considers this highly un-American and asks that aliens not be granted citizenship if they refused to fight during the war.
