When Yellowstone was established in 1872, the fledgling park was viewed greedily by poachers, railroads, and mining interests. The nineteenth-century way of seeing wilderness as empty land on which to capitalize would need to change before these threats would be removed forever. The Army's thirty-two year protection of Yellowstone from 1886-1918 bought time for the new national park idea to be accepted. As this completely new idea was gaining hold, wild places came to be viewed as worth protecting for their own unique value.Fort Yellowstone is a tangible reminder of the debt of gratitude we all owe the United States Army in protecting the legacy of Yellowstone National Park and through that, the park idea worldwide.
