SHGAPE Blog Series Crime and Punishment - First Post

Dear H-SHGAPE Subscribers


The editors at the SHGAPE Blog are pleased to share the first installment in our "Crime and Punishment" series, which explores histories of violence, law, criminal justice, and incarceration during the Gilded age and Progressive Era. The post, "Regulating Freedom in Georgia's County Court" is by Dr. Jonathon Booth and explores the battle over the contours of the legal system in Reconstruction-Era Georgia and its impact on the rights and freedom of freedmen and women.
