Today in History: Yellowstone Park established in 1872

Today in History: Yellowstone Park established
On this day in 1872, President Grant signed the bill creating the nation’s first national park at Yellowstone.

Native Americans had lived and hunted in the region that would become Yellowstone for hundreds of years before the first Anglo explorers arrived. John Colter, a famous mountain man, was the first Anglo to travel through the area in the early 1800s. In 1869, the Folsom-Cook expedition made the first formal exploration. In 1871, geologist Ferdinand Hayden led a government-sponsored exploration and brought along William Jackson, a pioneering photographer, and Thomas Moran, a brilliant landscape artist, to make a visual record of the expedition. Their images provided the first visual proof of Yellowstone’s wonders and caught the attention of the U.S. Congress. Early in 1872, Congress moved to set aside 1,221,773 acres of public land straddling the future states of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho as America’s first national park. President Grant signed the bill into law on this day in 1872. The Yellowstone Act of 1872 designated the region as a public “pleasuring-ground,” which would be preserved “from injury or spoliation, of all timber, mineral deposits, natural curiosities, or wonders within.” Source: history.com

Today in History: Rio de Janeiro founded in 1565

Today in History: Rio de Janeiro founded
On this day in 1565, the city of Sao Sebastiao do Rio de Janeiro (River of January) was founded on the flat sandy beaches between Sugar Loaf and Morro Cara de Cao. The name of the city of Rio de Janeiro was based on a misunderstanding: in January 1502, Portuguese explorer Goncalo Coelho landed in the Guanabara Bay and thought its waters would be a large river. The town was originally settled by French Huguenots. The economic wealth of the city developed after gold and diamond discoveries between 1690 and 1720. Due to its port location, Rio de Janeiro established a flourishing trade with Portugal, thereby laying the foundation for the present size of the city that has a population of over 6 million people.
