James Foote, Sea Cliff, New York, in the persona of our 26th President offers anecdotes related to Yellowstone National Park and his interest in the federal park system. As president, Roosevelt created five national parks; signed the landmark Antiquities Act and used its special provisions to unilaterally create 18 national monuments, including the Grand Canyon; set aside 51 federal bird sanctuaries; four national game refuges; and more than 100 million acres' worth of national forests.
Foote has appeared at many historic sites and commemorative events as Roosevelt including the family home at Sagamore Hill National Historic Site on Long Island.
