In a statement, Salazar said:

These national historic landmark designations span more than two centuries of our country’s history, from 17th century architecture to a Civil War battlefield to a 19th century-Kentucky whiskey distillery that continued to operate through the Prohibition era...Today’s designations include significant sites that help tell the story of America and the contributions that all people from all walks of life have made as we strive for a more perfect union.

The sites range from Selma, Alabama's Edmund Pettus Bridge, the scene of 'Bloody Sunday' during the Civil Rights era to Harriet Beecher Stowe's home in Hartford, Connecticut.
