Homework Help: Social Studies

Posted by Miley on Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 3:53pm.

What was the purpose of the Homstead Act? Did congress achieve this goal?

I got what the homstead act was, but i'm confused on the second part.

I put that congress did not achieve there goal because only about 20% of the homstead land went directly to small farmers. Also, Land-owning companies took large area's of land illegally and resold it to farmers at a high price.

Is this right? If you can help that would be great!:-)
