The National Register of Historic Places is pleased to promote awareness of and appreciation for the historical accomplishments of African Americans during African American History Month.  Visit our new African American History Month website, featuring historic properties listed in the National Register, National Register publications, and  National Park units commemorating the events and people, the designs and achievements that help illustrate African American contributions to American history. Look for links to other sites associated with African American history including properties recently added to the Aboard the Underground Railroad travel itinerary and other National Register travel itineraries. Additional information on African American history and a message from the Director of the National Park Service, Robert Stanton, regarding the Park Service's attempts to reflect the diversity of American culture, can be found here under the "Learn More" section.

Five online Teaching with Historic Places lesson plans examine different aspects of African American history, including the recent "The Siege of Port Hudson: 'Forty Days and Nights in the Wilderness of Death."  This lesson plan helps illustrate the importance of Mississippi to both the North and the South during the Civil War, and records the 48 day siege by the Union of the Confederate defenses in 1863 which held a strategic bluff overlooking the Mississippi River.
  Check out the new Teaching with Historic Places lesson plan, "The Liberty Bell: From Obscurity to Icon," which tells the story of the growth of the 2,000 pound Liberty Bell from its creation in 1753 to its growing fame as an international symbol of liberty. Readings, visual images, maps, and activities explore the history and meaning of the bell hung from the Pennsylvania State House when the Continental Congress declared independence from Great Britain.
