About the State aid to the U.S. Land-Grant Colleges address

Senator Justin S. Morrill of Vermont first introduced the idea of establishing Land-Grant Colleges to Congress in 1858. That bill was vetoed by President Buchanan. Morrill tried again and the College Land Grant was passed in 1862. This established Agricultural Colleges in 47 states.

This series consists of one pamphlet containing the address given by Congressman Justin S. Morrill in the Vermont State House of Representatives. Senator Morrill discusses his role in the creation of the Land-Grant Colleges and their success.
