SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

Medgar and Mylie Evers, Home, Mississippi

    Medgar Evers was an important national figure in the Civil Rights 
Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. The assassination of Medgar Evers on 
June 12, 1963, in the carport of his home in Jackson, Mississippi, was 
one of the catalysts for the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 
Both Medgar and Myrlie, his wife, were major contributors to advancing 
the goals of the civil rights movement on a national level. The 
Secretary of the Interior designated the Evers' house a National 
Historic Landmark on December 23, 2016.

Mill Springs Battlefield, Kentucky

    On January 19, 1862, Union and Confederate forces met in the Battle 
of Mill Springs in Kentucky. The result was an important victory for 
the Union in the American Civil War which opened the door to Federal 
invasion of southern states. The battlefield has been designated as a 
National Historic Landmark. The Mill Springs Battlefield Visitor Center 
and Museum is located in Nancy, Kentucky.

Camp Nelson, Kentucky

    During the American Civil War, Camp Nelson in Jessamine County, 
Kentucky, served as an important training area for African Americans 
who joined the Union Army to fight for their freedom. The camp began as 
a fortified U.S. Army supply depot, hospital, and garrison in 1863. As 
well as becoming one of the largest recruitment and training centers 
for African American soldiers, it served as a refugee camp for their 
wives and children. In 2013, the Secretary of the Interior designated 
Camp Nelson a National Historic Landmark.

Authority

    A potential National Monument designation of these sites by the 
President through the Antiquities Act, 54 U.S.C. 320301, may serve to 
preserve their nationally significant historic resources.
    The Antiquities Act has been used to preserve and protect natural 
and historical resources on Federal lands for future generations. 
President Theodore Roosevelt signed the Antiquities Act in 1906 
providing a foundation for natural resource conservation and cultural 
preservation. It requires that such monuments be limited to ``the 
smallest area of land compatible'' with the proper care and management 
for the protection of the identified objects.
