But, when America was brought into World War II, there was not enough soldiers to defend the country. Ironically, thousands of the feared Japanese-Americans were pulled out of the internment camps, put into the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and sent to war. The Japanese-American unit proved themselves to be the most heroic and decorated unit in American Military history. One man, Fred Korematsu, refused to be evacuated from his California home. So, he changed his identity in attempt to stay out of the camps.
America got involved in the First World War of its kind. The culture was beginning to change into a more free and liberal culture; big business closed in on running America into the ground. All of these things combined created quite the eventful decades and America was either going to sink or swim. This time showcased America’s strengths and weaknesses as a country and as a people for the rest of the world to see. America had a big challenge on its hands: to get a once separated nation to regroup and continue to strive for the excellence it wanted and needed to achieve.
This paper shall study the impact of Levittown project on trends of further urbanization and analyze the aesthetics of design and development involved in it. American urban housing system was not in a very good state at the end of Second World War. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers had started to return back to the mainland, filled with the dream of better and improved life (Baxandall and Ewen, 2000). Euphoric and buoyed by a hard fought and historic win, where U.S had established its military supremacy in the world, these people had great dreams and aspirations to continue in the legacy of that supremacy. This aspiration manifested itself most prominently in their demand for housing infrastructure, built with modern age planning, design, and latest infrastructure: houses that could symbolize the United States great power stature and their own triumph in being a part of this transition.

Our history has always been about doing this differently. It has been our desire since the infancy of our nation to create the most uniquely successful geographical brotherhood that had ever been witnessed. This began with the “city on a hill”, was fueled by the American Revolution, but was culminated by the United States Constitution. Years in the making, the product of a successful war but a failure known as the Articles of Confederation, the Constitution has been the pride and joy of our nation since its creation. However, America has changed much in 235 years.
