Bounty Land: It’s Complicated

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Event Details

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 during this in-library webinar by genealogist Annette Burke Lyttle.
