In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson signed the Grand Canyon National Park Act into law, establishing the site as protected federal land under the jurisdiction of the newly formed National Park Service. However, the effort to protect and preserve the Grand Canyon dates all the way back to 1882.
Then-Senator Benjamin Harrison, the future 23rd President of the United States, introduced legislation in 1883 and 1886 in an attempt to establish a protected site at the Grand Canyon. He later established the Grand Canyon Forest Reserve in 1893. President Theodore Roosevelt used a presidential proclamation in 1906 to create the Grand Canyon Game Preserve, and later formed the Grand Canyon National Monument in 1908. It took two more Congressional defeats in 1910 and 1911 before Grand Canyon National Park could be formally established in 1919.
The obverse of these $2 Grand Canyon National Park 100th Anniversary Legal Tender Notes features an enhanced, colorized field with images from the park. In total, there are three separate sites within the park captured in the combined photographic images on this side. The most famous is probably Horseshoe Bend, the site featured on the left of the bill.
On the reverse of Grand Canyon National Park 100th Anniversary Legal Tender Notes is the standard design for the $2 bill. Adopted in 1976 when the $2 Federal Reserve Note was introduced, this design shows the Committee of Five introducing the Declaration of Independence to the Continental Congress in 1776.
