Port Chicago Memorial
The Port Chicago
National Memorial is a historic site that commemorates the worst
home-front disaster of World War II. More than 300 sailors, most of whom
were African American, died in a mysterious explosion while loading
munitions on to ships bound for the Pacific front. A group of 50 African
American sailors who refused to continue loading munitions after the
explosion out of fear for their lives were later court-martialed.
