Orphan Trains: A Forgotten Piece of a Growing Nation

From 1854 to 1929 many orphaned children were placed onto trains in America’s Eastern cities and taken West to find new families. These trains, which came to be known as “Orphan Trains,” helped 200,000 children find a new home. In this episode, we interview Shaley George, the Curator of the National Orphan Train Complex in Concordia, KS and quiz her against Mindreader Eric Dittelman!
