Today in History: President Abraham Lincoln signs into law the Homestead Act, which is a program designed to grant public land to small farmers at low cost.The act gave 160 acres of land to any applicant who was the head of a household and 21 years or older, provided that the person settled on the land for five years and then paid a small filing fee. If settlers wished to obtain title earlier, they could do so after six months by paying $1.25 an acre.
