As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.
All of you lose sight in America was a wilderness. There were not roads, bridges or a bed to sleep in when immigrants arrived here from Europe, specifically the influx of Germans. I am going to provide you some insights to the Northern Great Plains in what life was like, because most of these people worked years to get the money for a ship fare here, and then had no wagon or ox to get where they were going.
So when it sounds like easy money, the fact is most people did not have a pot to piss in. In other words, they did not have a plough or even the money to pay for the seed to sow the land down to a crop.
Prices in 1885 AD in the year of our Lord:
Wheat 35 cents a bushel
Flax 90 cents
1888 AD in the year of our Lord
Wheat 1.00. Flax 1.35
1890 AD in the year of our Lord
Wheat 40 cents, Flax 75 cents, butter 2 cents a pound, eggs 4 cents a dozen.
See the Germans were successful and produced huge quantities of products, and after the railroad men suckered their peasant slaves to the prairies with high prices, they cut them down so the farmers would not get too rich. Same thing in Trump America in high gas prices.
1885 - 1, 050 dollar for 160 acres of land
1909 - 300 dollars
1911 - 1450 dollar
1920 - 3200 dollars
1921 - 4000 dollars
That was the roaring twenties when speculation ran rampant in real estate as today. By 1929, there was nothing but sheriff's auctions in you could not give land away in the Great Depression.
All profit and luxury eh?
In 1885, after prairie fires exposed buffalo bones, the Germans took wagons out and picked up buffalo bones to be shipped east at 10 dollars a ton.
With that they Germans purchased lumber to build houses and barns.
In 1885, employment in Dakota Territory was 75 cents a day.
In 1883, a laborer worked for 20 dollars a month, and received 50 cents a day threshing grain from dawn until dusk.
By 1895, laborers were receiving 1 dollar a day.
The railroad was paying 1.10 cents a day, but room and board was 50 cents.
The first year crop on the prairie was noted to be 10 bushels of wheat and 40 bushels of flax off the native prairie as it was impossible to work up the soil.
Threshing was done by using kitchen long knives and all beaten by hand
In year two, the harvest was 200 bushels of wheat, and 184 bushels of flax. That would be 70 dollars for the wheat and 165.60 cents for the flax or 235.60 cents for a years worth of very hard labor.
That is the history of the People who built America, and have had their farms and savings stolen from them, as they have been smeared for being Germans, as they are now being replaced by inferior DNA Jesuit Mexicans and Muslims, who are being handed over everything these peoples worked for.
