The National Register of Historic Places' Teaching with Historic Places explores the history of railroad transportation in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Visit our new online Teaching with Historic Places lesson plan, "Chattanooga, Tennessee: Train Town"at www.cr.nps.gov/nr/twhp. The city of Chattanooga, made famous by Glen Miller and his orchestra's 1941 song "Chattanooga Choo-Choo," has been a hub of rail transportation both for geographic and economic reasons. Chattanooga's location, on the Tennessee River, at a natural break where the Allegheny and Cumberland ranges converge, made it an appealing site for rail transportation. By laying the rail tracks through Chattanooga, the emerging rail industries hoped to reach and dominate lucrative markets west of the mountains. The lesson plan, with accompanying maps, photos, and activities, is an ideal teaching tool for educators and students.

The Park History web site at www.cr.nps.gov/history has placed three publications online. "Yellowstone National Park: Its Exploration and Establishment," by Aubrey L. Haines, "Interpretation in the National Park Service: A Historical Narrative," by Barry Mackintosh and "Robert Stanton: Director of the National Park Service," a short biography. Found online at the Park History web site, the publications allow public accessibility to historical studies about the National Park Service.

The National Park Service (NPS) has a major stake in living up to the public's trust of presenting an accurate and comprehensive view of the past. More than 220 of the 377 National Park sites are cultural sites, focusing on history, anthropology, and archaeology. Visitors come to these parks seeking education and inspiration, sometimes long after their years in the classroom are over. For them, these 220 parks are sources of educational experiences, vessels of historical memory, and sometimes places that loom large in questions about personal and national identity. Among the tools that the NPS uses to try to meet these challenges is a thematic framework, intended as a comprehensive outline of broad themes in U.S. history to assist in communicating American history to the public. Initially developed in 1936, the framework has been particularly useful as a tool for evaluating how well the National Park System reflects the sweep of American history (the framework can be seen at http://www.cr.nps.gov/history/thematic.html; a discussion about the framework is at www.cr.nps.gov/history/implementing.htm).
