#27 Yosemite Land Grant, 1864
Poster Caption: In 1864, Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Land Grant. For the first time, public land was set aside in recognition of America’s natural resources as a vital part of the nation’s cultural heritage. California turned the Yosemite site over to the federal government in 1906, and it became part of Yosemite National Park. (Photograph of Yosemite Falls, ca. 1906)
