Land for Sale!

Plan for Nininger City, 1856
Plan for Nininger City, 1856
You form a partnership with John Nininger, a man you do not know. He is the brother-in-law of Governor Alexander Ramsey. Together, you plan to make money by speculating on land. That is, you buy a tract of land, divide it into lots, and sell the lots at a profit. You invest in land south of St. Paul. Now, you have 3,800 lots for sale in your dream city of Nininger.

What will you do?
