The Orphan Train

Check out my latest article on the Orphan Train which was printed in the July 15 edition of the Johnson County Gazette. Orphan Trains were a way for the large east coast cities in the mid to late 1850s so ship a large number of young children out of their cities to cities further west. It is an interesting story.

Check it out at this link:  Orphan Train – Joco Gazette.  The article is located on the front page in the lower right-hand corner. It is then continued on page 5.
