March is Women’s History Month, a time when we recognize the contributions of all American women, past and present.

Remember the Ladies

March 1, 1781: Congress announces the ratification of the Articles of Confederation, which remain in effect until the adoption of the U.S. Constitution in 1789.

March 5, 1770: Growing tensions lead to clashes between Americans and British soldiers, culminating in the Boston Massacre—a deadly riot that results in five deaths and six injuries when soldiers open fire on a crowd.

Revitalize the Revolution

March 11, 1918: The Spanish flu reaches America, sickening a quarter of the population and killing 675,000. The flu affects one-third of the global population, killing 50 million worldwide.

March 15, 44 BCE: Julius Caesar is assassinated in the Senate chamber in Rome. He is said to have uttered “Et tu, Brute?” (“You too, Brutus?”) upon seeing his friend among the conspirators.

Travel to the Ancient Past

March 23, 1775: Patrick Henry addresses the Virginia Convention and inspires a revolution: “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

March 24, 1944: British soldiers plot an elaborate escape, known as the “Great Escape,” from Stalag Luft III, a German POW camp in Poland. The event was fictionalized in a 1963 film, based on a book by former Stalag POW Paul Brickhill.

Tools to Teach WWII

March 28, 1979: A partial nuclear meltdown occurs at the Three Mile Island Unit 2 reactor near Middletown, PA. Narrowly averting a national crisis, the U.S. enacts sweeping changes to nuclear power operations.
