    Native History: First Parcel of Nebraska Land Sold to Indian Fighter

    This Date in Native History: Legend has it that on this day, at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 1863, farmer and physician Daniel Freeman convinced a land officer to open up the office. It was there that Freeman signed up to become the first settler to purchase a 160-acre plot under the Homestead Act, enacted by President Abraham Lincoln in May of 1862. The land in Beatrice, Nebraska was not only beautiful, but particularly productive for farming.
