Asking for the "why" were they powerful seems to invite a list which isn't really what we aim for in questions.

@Mr.A I think if you restructured the question to be focused on the WHY leadership positions in the House or Senate are powerful that might help your question out. I like the spirit of the question, but it's wording is a little problematic.

You need to reformat this as a question. You just posted text from the national archives: archives.gov/education/lessons/homestead-act If you don't reformat the question into a question, we'll have to delete your question.
