On this day, in 1890, Congress established Yosemite National Park. It was the third National Park in the U.S., after Yellowstone and Sequoia, thanks to lobbying from John Muir and other environmental activists. 
Richard Sellars provides a detailed history of the formation of the national parks in Preserving Nature in the National Parks. The book traces the epic clash of values between traditional scenery-and-tourism management and emerging ecological concepts in America’s most treasured landscapes and provides an analysis of why the Service has not responded in full faith to the environmental concerns of recent times.
