Episode 113- The Grange   addthis
The world of American farmers, circa 1850. As they powered the economic engine that opened a continent, they were all but despised by the nation they fed. In the new halls of money and power, the farmer had neither. Enter Oliver H. Kelley, son of a Boston tailor. He built a farm on the Minnesota frontier and that grim world changed forever.
