The National Register of Historic Places' Teaching with Historic Places invites online educators and students to visit their newest online lesson plan, Chatham Plantation: Witness to the Civil War. High on a bluff in Stafford County, Virginia, overlooking the Rappahannock River and the town of Fredericksburg beyond, stands the 18th-century plantation house called Chatham. For years this house stood at the centerpiece of a prosperous estate supported by nearly 100 slaves. Between 1862 and 1864 it became, in turn, an army headquarters, a communications center, a hospital, a campsite, and a refuge from the cold for Union soldiers. The setting of Chatham has changed little over the years, so it is easy to imagine what it was like during the Civil War. Clara Barton, who later founded the American Red Cross, was eager to get to Fredericksburg before the 1863 battle. She had already experienced the horrors of the makeshift hospitals on the battlefield at Antietam in September of 1862, and she knew how much her help was needed. She quickly organized a routine for the treatment of the wounded at Chatham, as well as for those wounded who were taken to houses and churches in the town. In one letter home she described being hindered in her movements inside Chatham by her long skirts, which became heavy as they were soaked with blood. The American poet Walt Whitman also came here to help the wounded. The lesson plan comes with readings, a history, visual images, maps and activities and can be found at www.cr.nps.gov/nr/twhp .
