For today; the USDA is celebrating its 150th anniversary. From the USDA website “In a three month span in 1862, Lincoln signed into law three important pieces of legislation that would have a profound and lasting impact on U.S. agriculture and society.” One such piece of legislation was an act that established the United States Department of Agriculture. Check out this site. On your blog, list those important pieces of legislation, the year they were passed, any co-sponsors, and what each act did. Do any of these pieces of legislation affect you personally today?
Read Lincoln’s Milwaukee Speech. Paraphrase what he said about the importance of Agriculture to America.
