The Homestead Act of 1862 brought about significant and enduring changes to the United States. By giving government land to individuals in 30 states this law allowed nearly any man or woman a chance to live the American Dream. Over 1.6 million people rose to the challenge and claimed 270 million acres. Homestead National Park in Nebraska commemorates the struggle of ordinary Americans as they seek to fulfill the American dream of westward expansion.
