The Making of the Great Plains Symposium

On March 28 - 30, 2012 researchers from across the country will make their way to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for a three day symposium focused on exploring the impact of our landmark pieces of legislation passed by Congress in 1862 that fundamentally shaped the Great Plains. Perhaps most significant is the Homestead Act of 1862, which is being observed for its 150th anniversary this year.
