Trivia

Several references are made to the Allotment Act, whereby Indians , i.e. Native Americans, were given land to live on. This was an actual law, the Dawes Act of 1887 (amended in 1891, and in 1898 by the Curtis Act, and again in 1906 by the Burke Act).

The first Homestead was granted outside Beatrice, Nebraska on January 1, 1863. See more »
