Traveling Trunk Policies
Homestead's traveling trunks are designed so that teachers and students anywhere can receive hands-on educational materials relating to the Homestead Act and westward expansion. The trunks are easily shipped in a large flat rate box from the United States Postal Service. The only costs associated with "borrowing" a trunk is the return postage.
