"Ho for Kansas!" advertisement
This is an advertisement for the Real Estate and Homestead Association located in Nashville, Tennessee announcing their departure for Kansas on 15 April, 1878. The ad encourages people to contact Benjamin Singleton for more information "in the pursuit of southwestern lands in the Americas" and the transportation to get to Kansas. This ad not only promotes the selling and buying of land in the American West, but part of a movement to encourage African Americans to move to the trans-Mississippi west after the Civil War.
