The Antiquities Act

In 1906, the Antiquities Act granted The President the right to designate land as a Historic Monument. This land would then been administered under the NPS. More info here:

We would like the Forum to be more than just a place to hang out.
There will be a quiz. :lol:

There is also some interesting reading about IR if you click on History on the left.
