  • The land was divided and put up for sale to settlers, because the government was having money problems due to the war.

  • Division of Land: divided into townships or city is 36 square miles, which were then divided into one-square mile. 

  • Each section received a number, and Section 16 was reserved only for public schools.

  • This was right in the middle of the town, so that all children could go to school and make it required.
