On August 29, 1857, Harper's
Weekly
reported that the
Government Land Office
refused a land claim in
Wisconsin by a free black man
on the grounds that free black
men with slave ancestors could
not be citizens and therefore
were not entitled to federal
lands. Harper's and other historic

texts are available via the Web.
