Orphan Trains: An Interactive History Adventure
In the early 1900s, adults hoped to find parents for homeless city children by sending them west on trains. Most of these children had no idea whether they would find kind adoptive families or be forced to work like slaves. Will you: • Head west after living on the streets of New York City? • Search for a home for you and your three younger siblings? • Try to care for yourself and your baby sister on your own?
