However, Hillenbrand said, “But the men were fed so little and worked so hard that they felt they had to steal to survive.” There were elaborate sugar and vegetable stealing lines set up.

This usually happens during times of crisis or when things go awry, but trying to do the right thing will often make you do the worst possible thing, causing regret later on.

In addition to railroads, Congress passed numerous acts and laws to encourage people to move west. One of the first acts was the Homestead Act of 1862. Which “gave 160 acres of land to anyone who would pay a $10 registration fee and pledge to live on it and cultivate it for five year” (Divine, Breen, Fredrickson, and Williams 502).
