On the Fact that in 1866 the Union Pacific Railroad Sold a Large Swath of Land Near Omaha to General William Tecumseh Sherman for $2.50 an Acre When the Going Rate Was $8.00 an Acre

 It was one of the most egregious examples of crony capitalism in U.S. history and the fact that it involved a serial war-criminal (southern civilians and Native-Americans) makes it even more despicable to the point where I can actually taste the vomit in the back of my throat. Fuck him.
