Yellowstone National Park
With the establishment of Yellowstone National Park on March 1, 1872, Americans began embracing the idea of preserving and protecting the best of the United States’ natural treasures for the benefit and enjoyment of generations to come. In the years following the end of the Civil War, an increasing number of travelers navigated the country exploring and enjoying the landscape. They shared their discoveries and encounters through a variety of printed media, and soon these sites were recognized as iconic American landmarks.
