Land: It's Complicated
by Annette Burke Lyttle
land was offered as compensation for soldiers who fought in the Revolution, War
of 1812, and Mexican War, but veterans of these wars didnt simply take up
residence on their land grants. Some did, but many people who werent veterans
ended up with these lands. Learn about the laws, all the people who got involved,
and where to find the records.
Annette Burke Lyttle is a professional genealogist specializing in online
and repository research, and genealogical education and writing. She loves helping
people find and tell their family stories.
