"Homestead Act” - 65 Hektar Land geschenkt | Dibaba in Amerika | NDR Doku

well a lot is possible but that's exactly what the north german settlers found here on the prairie nothing but they got 160 LK 65 acres from the us government to bake that was the farm law we're in the dead national monument of Holmes in Southeast Nebraska is a monument commemorating the settlement of the American West here the first farm was given to a settler under the

homestead

act at the corner of the home in 1863 my father is a farmer my older brother inherited the

land

there I have nothing to do with the options, so since you are excluded from the succession, that means that you share the same luck in that no country had the KÖTTER the delivery rates that this year people and other people and now there is news from America that there is a law here that everyone who wants to come, wherever they come from, yes, 160 trucks It had maybe seven hectares, all we see here is like 100, that's not even the entire area that is l It's dio, because if you include the forest, you get to around 160 corners, an incredible number, which must be what you do. then he comes here up north we had to sign he had to apply i want a claim in

homestead

law and he did so he didn't own the

land

yet but he was entitled to it the title came later of five years. if they had converted about 40 LKA to farm

land

a man with one or one flight damage wanted to convert a LK er to farm

land

then he has to walk about 10 miles for that did they really pay for the crossing or do we know that that was financed, they had nothing, no, they had nothing and that also means that all the assholes couldn't come for nothing, so the very poor people stayed, p. u At home and they were very summery seasonal workers, the migrant workers went to Hol

land

to cut grass or something, but the ones you just described should say goodbye to the outgoing farmer who was able to start the project with a little family support, who maybe he could say goodbye after about two or three years of preparation, let's say, and then he had to have about 40 thalers on the edge for the

land

to be free, he could get it, yes, but he had no money to buy flights, seeds, horses. no ox no no house no nothing and people have that completely underestimated what did they have to start here with when they come here with nothing just their hands the job usually worked for the neighbors yes they had a home maybe they were lucky there was already agriculture in next door neighborhood and there he was a peon worked definitely made money and then gradually started doing it vigorously When a woman got married it was better yes and after about 7 to 10 years who would have had a chance to get a income from his own farm, then after seven to ten years he could inherit the

land

to which he had previously been entitled, yes, but to the children.

Even they didn't have that as a title yet. This law was valid for over 100 years, which means that up to four generations could definitely benefit from it and then often moved further west again. and again to the west, that is, until the 1960s, the law applies to this perspective of being able to advance one's life through the work of one's hands to be able to take one's rights that's mine that's my ownership that is from a European perspective quite a leap in the way of life and from an American perspective that is the beginning of the pioneer myth and falling at the seams yes if you mention them the one the country became is a gift and the other federal states are unfortunately like that and we can't enlighten them, we can only take note with historical awareness, so to speak, what do you think the north germans who came here knew about the country they will get, did they know that they took someone ?

I think they knew very little about it that was not part of their perceptual horizons. In fact, they were focused on their own happiness and this sight. Magnificent view of the

land

, an area of ​​160 acres granted Hard to imagine that a single acre is the size of this parking lot and then 160 times that is the equivalent of 65 acres The settlement of the American West quickly became a major romanticized theme Laura Engels' works are wilder than just one example Hollywood also recognized the potential early on, yet many aspects were distorted and ignored a new beginning on the American prairie w What did it really look like?

The first thing the North Germans needed when they settled was of course a roof over their heads, but on this prairie wood was in short supply and that's why they built houses with grass lawns, son. they're like squares that you then take cut dirt out of and then the walls made out of it and that was a big job let's see how much grass is in here some wood that was found in here was used to support the roof construction let's go in and look like the son's house From the inside, one thing I can say is that it's nice cool outside, it's hot and these dips or walls insulate the house and in winter of course they keep the cold outside but it was always humid in here and here it's where the family is used to that was the bed maybe one, two, three, four had children, you don't know, maybe someone slept there, or you have something there.

In any case, it is a walk of four by four meters and life passed here and of course in the winter I imagine that an oven like this came later and with the romanticism that we filled as our little farmer who knew what not to do at all, life was hard here in the desert and a turf house on the side that made the

land

tillable. There was definitely enough that it was the first years in the turf house, the work continued constantly so that life in it became more bearable over the course of time. years an accommodation that deserves that name even with a touch of luxury wow cool and fresh the air here a lot of furniture you can see here table and chair we don't have that and cupboards crockery cutlery everything you have here safe in this area lived with a large family parents and many children it has a little comfort the oven in the middle up there you have so true Some things are stored and the great luxury here is the floor that did not exist before, that you gave yourself that, it was something very special, but, of course , there was no running water, electricity, or wifi, and Aunt Meyer, of course, is outside the door. that's how it was, but why are there two holes mostly it was so that the family could only afford to build a wooden house after a generation around the wooden house barn, stable, garage and silo were built over time and the little farm is finished we are on our way to a family whose ancestors also received a gift of

land

at the time 65 acres the hennerberg family a last name widespread on the Nebraska and Kansas borders four generations at one time along Over the decades more and more

land

was bought so that the previous 65 hectares are now around.
