40 Acres and A Mule
In Response To: 40 acres & a mule ()

Slogan that originated as a result of U.S. Army General William T. Sherman's Special Field Order #15 (January 16, 1865) providing that every ex-slave family receive 40 acres of farmland.

Former slaves were later lent army mules to facilitate plowing.
