28. They weren't the only ones

I think you'll find the same story at most of them, kids crowded together, far from home, language barrier, and epidemics of diseases to which Indian children had no resistance. Oh, the schools had a loftier purpose, to educate them for a better life than sitting in tents or other "primitive" housing in the mud, plus the darker purpose of educating the Indian out of them, but until vaccinations came out, the overcrowding did the job that the wars hadn't.

The hard part of this one is that likely families weren't notified. If they had been, they'd have wanted to bury their own children, but people of such lofty purposes never consider the human feelings of their human projects.

And the three year old. Who snatches three year olds to put them into boarding school? Must've been a bounty offered to heartless bastards.
