The sequester may have shut down White House tours, but it hasn’t stopped the president from opening up a new national park. On Monday, President Barack Obama will designate five new National Monuments, including one for abolitionist Harriet Tubman.
The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument, located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, will receive a designation as a National Park, along with Delaware’s First State National Monument, Ohio’s Charles Young Buffalo Soldiers National Monument, the Río Grande del Norte National Monument in New Mexico, and the San Juan Islands National Monument in Washington State. The designations are made by under the Antiquities Act, and the new monuments will be administered by the Department of the Interior.
