The Kansas-Nebraska Act


Part of a much larger site offered by nebraskastudies.org (which tracks the history of the Nebraska area) this segment begins with The Kansas-Nebraska Act and continues with related stories. The dwellings of the Native Americans of the plains, African American settlers, the Homestead Act, and the challenges of living on the Plains are all topics presented along with historic photos. In what sort of dwelling did the early settlers live in those first days on the plains? Who were these people? This website discusses the various housing available and the immigrant experience. The site includes wonderful photos of early pioneers as well as some diary excerpts from these hardy pioneers.
