Bataan Legacy Historical Society

Bataan Legacy Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization whose mission is to instill civic pride and engagement in young adults through the lessons of WWII in the Philippines from the perspectives of Filipino and American military and civilians.  It has worked successfully with the California Department of Education to include WWII in the Philippines in the U.S. history curriculum framework for Grade 11 in California (Chapter 16).  It is now embarking on the next step to create sample lesson plans to help implement the curriculum framework in California by working with California high school teachers.

In addition to its work on the curriculum framework, it commemorates seminal events during WWII in the Philippines, organizes exhibitions  and conducts interviews with survivors for use by students learning about WWII in the Philippines.
