Re: The Fringes of Imprisonment Policy

Dear Dan, 

I enjoyed this post and only had a quick comment that I found myself wondering how exactly one converts a Civil War-era hotel into a temporary jail or prison that can hold more than a handful of people, let alone seventy. It sounds like a setting for a scene from a Tarantino movie. No doubt much of the enforcement work against alleged and actual disloyalty on the home front was improvised. Fascinating stuff!

Best wishes,
