Forty Acres in Antarctica

Forty Acres in Antarctica

Sometime after 1865, this newly emancipated African-American family is inspecting their new forty-acre property along the coast of Antarctica. With lots of land and no indigenous inhabitants to displace, Antarctica would seem a choice location for all those millions of promised forty-acre plots. It might be a bit nippy, but they could always set up greenhouses to grow their crops when not hunting penguins and seals. Who knows, they might have set up a new democratic republic down there by now.
