This Day in History:  1872 – President Ulysses S. Grant signs the bill establishing the nation’s first national park at Yellowstone.


Fact of the Day:  Yellowstone National Park is home to the Yellowstone super volcano, which last erupted 640,000 years ago.  Super volcanos are capable of covering huge areas with lava and volcanic ash, and have been known to cause long-lasting climate change.


Quote of the Day:


Did You Know?   John, Tyler, 10th president of the United States, had a son when he was 63.  That son fathered two sons of his own when he was 71 and 75.  Those two sons are still alive, meaning a man who became President in 1841 has two living grandchildren.
