  • Prisoner in 1841 were cruelly  locked up in chains and in cages.
  • Please let me out of these chains!
  • Prisoners were wrongly abused and whipped.

  • People were put in jail for the smallest of debts and in jail they were unable to work for or repay the debt so they were in there for years.
  • You have been sentenced to jail.
  • Please don't! I won't be able to repay my debt from jail.
  • One day while going to teach summer school Dorothea Dix saw the things going on in jails and was horrified.
  • I have to do something about this.
  • Please help me I have been locked up for days.
  • Starting in the early 1840;s Dix visited hundreds of jails and prisons in Massachusetts and noticed the same cruelties going on.  This was the beginning of a reform. 
  • This is Terrible.
  • After gaining information for 2 years Dix campaigned for prison reformation for the rest of her life. Because of Dix  people with debt were not put in jail and cruel punishment were outlawed. If Dix had not pushed for a reform then prisoners and people in mental asylums would still be getting abused and people in debt would also have to go to jail for year.
