Orphan Train subject of April 4 presentation
Renée Wendinger will present “Orphan Train Saga: Forced Migration of Homeless Children” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in Room E203 at Central Lakes College, Brainerd.
So-called Orphan Trains carried more than 200,000 children, ages 3 months to 17 years, from orphanages in New York to the Midwest from 1854-1929 in the largest mass migration of children ever to take place on American soil. Most of these children were immigrants from European countries.
