In 1895 a juvenile facility was established in New York, where the children governed through the same political structures required by the U.S. Constitution. The children in the juvenile elected representatives, senators, and a president. Later U.S. President Woodrow Wilson published an open letter to the citizens reminding them that government in its original and ancient definition implied self-control and government of others. Wilson believed that self-government emanate from one's own heart.
