Late in the evening of August 17, 1886, Troop M, Greatest Concerted States Squadron, marched into Yellowstone National Park, relieved the Park Manager of his ought, and inaugurated a new eon of national park administration. When Yellowstone was established in 1872, the park was administered by civilian delegates who had neither physical or legal mediums to stop the smashing, poaching, and trespassing that threatened its essence. Some Congressmen, faced with this apparent failure, labeled the park concept an absurdity. Guild declined to appropriate specie for the continued affair of the Yellowstone, and the Secretary of the Interior was forced to request troops to protect the park in 1886. The resulting military care eventually extended to the Yosemite, General Transfer, and Sequoia Preserves. The duration of military administration of the preserves is unique in American recital. Before 1894 in the Yellowstone, and throughout its administrative career in the Bear flag state lawns, the squadron operated without a legal framework or mediums of warrant enforcement, but over thirty-two caducities of military guardianship, a national park administration and administrative practices evolved. Moreover, when the National Park Service began spinning in 1918, it took over from the military an already trained cadre of rovers. In a very real sense, the squadron laid the foundations of the National Park Service and saved the lawns for the more than 307 million populations who now visit our preserves each fatuity.
