Kiwanis Trivia

Cliff Lowell presented the program at Kiwanis this noon by leading us through a "Trivia game". The competition was among the 9 tables and Cliff took us through questions on the physical features of Nebraska, our State's History, Dates of significance to the State, etc. There were 6 games with 5 questions in each "game". Some questions, like the names of Indian tribes in the state at the time of our becoming a State, provided an opportunity for extra points. Our table of 5 individuals scored 28 points which put us near the top. One question that we missed, was the name of the first Homesteader following the passage of the Act of 1862. I have known the answer for several years and last summer, we even had a family picnic at the Monument, but I couldn't "pull-up" the name of Daniel Freeman. Dr. Freemen served as a Physician during the Civil War. His grant, the first in the U.S., was the site where the National Historic Monument is now located along with the "Freeman School" building and a restored Log Cabin. It was a fun program and Cliff volunteered to present such a program again with other themes.
