Badlands, SD - Formations

When the U.S. Congress passed the Homestead Act in 1862, this brought a flood of emigrants into the Badlands of South Dakota, where they could purchase 160 acres for a token payment of about $18. As the push for western expansion continued, the Sioux retaliated more and more against the many settlers encroaching upon their lands, ultimately culminating with the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868.
