Beschreibung:
Both in the popular imagination and in academic discourse, North and South are presented as fundamentally divergent penal systems in the aftermath of the Civil War, a difference mapped onto larger perceived cultural disparities between the two regions. The South's post Civil War embrace of chain gangs and convict leasing occupies such a prominent position in the nation's imagination that it has come to represent one of the region's hallmark differences from the North. The regions are different, the argument goes, because they punish differently.
