Re: Where Was Your Ancestor's Land Allotment?

Hi Brad. I understand that restrictions were moved from the freedmen's land and I am seeing that their land was sold, so many acres of 40, 80, 120, etc. The freedmen's land was sold just as quickly as they got it.

What was the various reasons the land was sold? I have a list of freedmen land that was sold that I will post soon just to show the amount sold for, but not the reason.

I know how to search for land. I was hoping there would still be some freedmen that was able to keep their land (a few). There are more freedmen that lost their land than kept it.

Thanks for posting.
