I have ancestors who were homesteaders in the Colorado Territory.  I would like to investigate their influence and contributions (homesteaders).

Today, 20 May, is the anniversary of the signing of the (United States) Homestead Act. The bill passed and was signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln on May 20, 1862.  I just realized this after I created profiles on two homesteaders today!  Congratulations to all homesteaders!
