The National Register of Historic Places is pleased to promote awareness of and appreciation for the historical accomplishments of American women during Women's History Month with the Women's History Month web site. As part of the celebration, this site showcases 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 the contribution of women to the Nation's history. An essay on the architecture of Julia Morgan, the architect of the Hearst San Simeon Estate and one of the nation's first prominent female architects, can be found here. Join the National Register in paying tribute to the many women who have made an impact in our past. Go to Celebrate Womens History

Teaching with Historic Places has four ready-to-use lesson plans, ready for free downloading, honoring important aspects of women's history. Titles include 'Clara Barton" house: Home of the American Red Cross,' Adeline Hornbek and the Homestead Act: A Colorado Success Story,' 'The M'Clintock House: A Home to the Women's Rights Movement', and 'First Lady of the World: Eleanor Roosevelt at Val-Kill.'

Two online Teaching with Historic Places lesson plans examine different aspects of American history." From Canterbury to Little Rock: The Struggle for Educational Equality for African Americans" focuses on African American education in the United States from Prudence Crandall's attempts to open a school for young black women in Canterbury, Connecticut, in the early 1830's, through the integration attempts by nine African American students at Arkansas' Little Rock Central High School. The Arkansas episode became the symbol and focus for the controversy over school segregation, following the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka, which determined that the "separate but equal" doctrine, which provided a legal basis for segregated schools, was wrong. "The Battle of Bentonville: Caring for Casualties of the Civil War" explains the history of medical care in the Union Army in the field from the battles of First Manassas in 1861 to the Battle of Bentonville, North Carolina, in 1865. The lesson plan is accompanied by photographs of Civil War field medicine, two maps showing General Sherman's march through the Confederacy and the Battle of Bentonville, and four readings demonstrating the development of Union medicine during the Civil War, including several personal observations. This lesson plan is based on the National Register of Historic Places registration file, "Bentonville Battleground State Historic Site" and was written by John C. Goode, Historic Site Manager at Bentonville Battleground State Historic Site, and Elaine Beck, Curator of Education for the North Carolina Historic Sites Section. URL:
