Publisher's Summary

Between 1850 and 1930, around 250,000 abandoned and orphaned children traveled from the East Coast of the US to various cities and towns throughout the nation on what would be known as the orphan trains. Most came from New York City. 

Posters were placed around town advertising "Homes Wanted for Orphans"; usually a committee was formed to help facilitate the adoption. These children were supposed to be adopted and treated as family members, but this was not always the case however, and sometimes they were placed in less than ideal circumstances. Despite this loosely structured plan, many children did find loving homes and people who cared for their needs.
