Summary
"In 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt designated the nation's first National Monument and opened the door for all future Presidents to join him in his quest to recognize the diverse depth and breadth of this great nation. Roosevelt's purpose was to preserve significant parcels of American history and geology for future generations of Americans to experience. Hence forth, each National Monument has been designated by a sitting U.S. President as his personal memorial to areas that he deems should be preserved. Some National Monuments garner large budgets and staffs, others next to none. But every one of America's National Monuments tells part of the story of the America's glory"--Container insert
