Triumphs in their Lives (Compare/Contrast)
The orphan train rider
During the time the parents were not making enough money and didn’t have jobs. The inventions of farm machinery meant that fewer workers were needed on farms.
Immigrants came to the United States and competed with Americans for jobs. People competed for the factory jobs so the factories didn’t have to pay as much.
Parents didn’t have money so they couldn’t take care of their kids so the kids became orphans.
The kids either sleep on the streets or join the orphan train.
They would eventually find people to take care of them but sometimes the siblings would get separated up.
Mom died and dad couldn’t afford to take care of Lee and his siblings. Lee, Leo and Gerald were sent to the orphan train to find new parents. They were adopted by different families and were separated. Finally, Lee got united with some of his siblings.
This is one of the orphan trains and A quarter million children rode the orphan trains from 1854 to 1929.
