    The Pacific Railway Act made the 32nd parallel the transcontinental route and gave huge grants of land to rail companies. The Morrill Land-Grant Acts are United States statutes that allowed for the creation of land-grant colleges. Happened during 1962

    The Homestead act promised free land to settlers on the western frontier. It promised ownership of a 160-acre tract of public land to a citizen or head of a family who had resided on and cultivated the land for five years after the initial claim.
