August 2020 Webinar
Bounty Land: It's Complicated
Presenter: Annette Burke Lyttle
Date: Tuesday, August 18, 2020
Time: 7:00 PM Central
Webinar Description: Bounty land was offered as compensation for soldiers who fought in the Revolution, War of 1812, and Mexican War, but veterans of these wars didn’t simply take up residence on their land grants. Some did, but many people who weren’t veterans ended up with these lands. Learn about the laws, all the people who got involved, and where to find the records.
