Hayden and the Birth Of Yellowstone

In 1871, Ferdinand V. Hayden was tasked with leading the first federally funded geological survey to explore the region soon to become Yellowstone National Park. Hayden's report, along with the artwork and photographs made on the expedition, played a prominent role in convincing Congress to designate Yellowstone as America's first national park.
