Abandoned: The Untold Story of the Orphan Trains

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Event Details

By the end of the Civil War, an estimated 30,000 homeless  and orphaned children roamed the streets of New York City. In response to this crisis, the age of orphan asylums began, culminating in one of the most improbable and audacious episodes in American history. Called the Orphan Train Movement, it endeavored to save these children lost to the streets by heroes who fought for their liberation.  Taught by Michael Keene: Professor of History, University of Prince Edward Island
