Addie Card

Addie Card was nine years old when she started working in a mill in VT. Her parents were always working and never had time for her and barely any money.  She didn’t have a fun childhood, and only celebrated her birthday with a few pieces of food with the very small amount of money they had.

Her dad was Carter Card, and mother was Anne Card, and they only had simple meals. These meals consisted of much bread, and noodles. They lived on the bare minimum. Addie goes to work at seven in the morning and leaves at six at night, making only three dollars a day. Addie gets through, and is very brave. She will never give up. She wants to have a good family, with a good job to feed her family.
