NEW ONLINE LESSON PLAN NOW AVAILABLE In honor of Historic Preservation Week, and Earth Day, the National Register of Historic Place's Teaching with Historic Places (TwHP) highlights one of our newest lessons, "Run for Your Lives! The Johnstown Flood of 1889!" This lesson plan features maps, readings, activities and provides historical content for both educators and students. Johnstown Flood National Memorial in Pennsylvania commemorates the most devastating flood of the 19th century in the United States and the greatest national catastrophe in the post-Civil War era. The Johnstown Flood was caused by the giving way of the South Fork Dam and is an example of what can happen when people disregard principles of engineering and hydrology. The flood has provided a vast literature with important lessons for environmental management today. At present, all that remains of the historic earthen dam (originally about 900 feet long and 75 feet high) are the north and south abutments, the spillway cut around the north abutment to carry off excess water, and a few remnants of wood and culvert foundation stones representing the location of the control mechanism. When story of the disaster came one bold headline proclaimed, "JOHNSTOWN BLOTTED OUT BY THE FLOOD! HALF OF ITS PEOPLE KILLED." The story that followed told of unbelievable horrors, but the truth, when it became known, was scarcely less ghastly than the fabricated tales of the "yellow" journalists of the time: more than 2,200 people were known to be dead and hundreds more were missing. Property damage amounted to $17 million. The cleanup operation would take five years, and bodies were still being found months and even years after the flood. This and other exciting lesson plans can be found online at: www.cr.nps.gov/nr/twhp/

MAY IS NATIONAL ASIAN-PACIFIC HERITAGE MONTH

The National Register of Historic Places is pleased to promote awareness of and appreciation for the historical contributions of Asian and Pacific peoples in the United States and its associated territories. Learn, as part of the celebration of this month, the rich heritage of the Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Republic of Palua, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. From the early 1800s to the late 20th century, Asian and Pacific peoples have played a vital role in the development of the United States and made lasting contributions in all elements of American society. Join the National Register in commemorating just a few of the places where Asian and Pacific people have made history. This feature can be found on our home page: www.cr.nps.gov/nr/
