Description
"This title examines an important historic event--the orphan train movement. Easy-to-read, compelling text explores the history of the Childrens Aid Society and the development of the Brace School, lodging houses, and industrial schools, the conditions that led to child abandonment in the 1800s, problems with institutional care and child labor laws, the roles the Civil War, the Great Depression, and people like Charles Loring Brace played, and the effects of this event on soci society."--Publisher's website.
