How Do You Acquire New Land?
Getting Land Under the Continental Congress
Land Ordinance of 1785
To purchase land, you can haggle over the subdivided sections, and can even divide the one square mile sections further down if you don't need that much land.
Please keep in mind that sections 8, 11, 26, and 29 are all reserved for use by the federal government. The federal government has also reserved one third of all gold, silver, lead, and copper mines that may be found.
The Northwest Ordinance of 1787
The ordinance will call for a public university to be built in order to educate the people settling in the Northwest.
There will be no slavery or involuntary servitude within this new region. However, any fugitive slave caught in this territory shall be lawfully returned to their owner from whom they escaped.
