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.
Did You Know?
The Homestead Act, Emancipation Proclamation and the Railroad Act were passed at the same time and worked together to move emigrants to the west for settlement.
