Geography

Nebraska lies in the middle of the Great Plains on the westernmost foothills of "Grain Belt". The eastern part of the state is part of the Midwest, and the western part is part of the western United States. One of the slogans of Nebraska is: "Where the West begins".

History


In the 1860s, the Homestead Act brought the first wave of settlers to Nebraska to take possession of the government-made land.
(The Homestead Act is a land acquisition law that came into force in the USA in 1863. This allowed anyone over the age of 21 to settle on a hitherto uninhabited piece of land, to mark out and farm a 160 acre (about 64 ha) of land. )

Nebraska residents have used modern agriculture to turn the prairie plains into a land of ranches and farms. The history of Nebraska is, therefore, deeply connected to agriculture. The nickname of Nebraska also testifies to this: "Cornhusker State."
