- Explain the importance of President Truman’s order to integrate the US military and the federal government:
Executive order 9981: was an executive order issued by president Truman that abolished discrimination in the armed forces and led to the end of segregation in the forces. This impacted the government and military because millions of African Americans came into the force and Truman elected them for high position government offices. With the additional African Americans in the armed forces, the war in Europe progressed towards a victory. This resulted in almost complete termination of discrimination left among African Americans. This order was a huge step towards America becoming fully liberated and a place for anyone.
Reflection: This order was a big step towards African Americans being fully liberated. This order made discrimination disappear. Without this executive order the outcome of many African Americans and the War maybe completely different.
