OUT OF PRINT - Yellowstone: First National Park, 1872


Poster Caption: In 1871, a partnership of ordinary citizens and railroad executives persuaded government officials to withhold a large portion of Wyoming Territory from a public land auction, in recognition of its importance as an example of the grandeur and diversity of America’s natural resources. An Act of Congress in 1872, signed by President Ulysses S. Grant, made Yellowstone the first national park in the world. Since then, the United States has designated nearly 400 national parks, sites, and monuments to preserve the nation’s natural, historical, and cultural heritage.
