National Park Week Quiz #1 required you to name 10 national parks whose names contain “stem words” identical to stem words in the name of President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site.
The stem of the park’s name was defined as the part that doesn’t include the unit designation or category, so you had these six words to work with: President, William, Jefferson, Clinton, Birthplace, and Home.
You were instructed not to include Roger Williams National Memorial, President’s Park, or Homestead National Monument of America. That leaves 13 national parks with names that contain one or more of these six words:
William Howard Taft National Historic Site
Prince William Forest Park
Thomas Jefferson Memorial
Jefferson National Expansion Memorial
Castle Clinton National Monument
Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site
Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park
George Washington Birthplace National Monument
Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site
Carter G. Woodson Home National Historic Site
Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site
Lincoln Home National Historic Site
Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park
