        Protestors In Alaska | Ken Burns: The National Parks

        President Jimmy Carter's decision in 1978 to invoke the Antiquities Act to save huge portions of Alaska from development sparked furious opposition in the state. A legislative compromise in 1980 ultimately resulted in seven new national parks in Alaska, more than doubling the amount of land in the park system.
