On this day in History June 30th 1864 President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Land Grant. This grant created the first land set aside by the US Government for public use. The Yosemite Valley and other "National Parks" From around the country would not be given such status until many years later. It would take a journalist from New York and the Famed John Muir, to push for preservation of americas wilderness. So much more to write... so little time today.
