signed a bill granting 39,000 acres of Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Big Tree
Grove to the State of California. Never before had land been set aside to
protect its natural state for the public to enjoy. This historic legislation was
the beginning of not only the California State Park System, but the national
park idea we know today.
