Has anyone discovered a story like this?
I would like to feature a Civil War Union veteran who traveled west to Washington Territory after the war, and made a claim under the Homestead Act AND used his veteran’s 40 acre bonus. And I need to be able to represent him and his family in a photograph, the earlier the better. Any suggestions?
