The Orphan Train Movement: The Tale Of Three Riders​
Between 1854 and 1929, the Children's Aid Society of New York moved over 200,000 children from their streets and orphanages to the more perceived bucolic life of the Midwest farm. The movement was rooted in the sordid histoy of the US of separating children from their home and their parents spanning hundreds of years. The history of this movement is also checkered and Hamilton County, Iowa orphan train riders serve as a study group illustrating the range of outcomes of these re-placed children. Three case studies will look in depth at the range of materials available and the effort needed to identify their parents.
