Prisoner Hauling Goods | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Elevated view of an African American prisoner hauling goods with a  horse-drawn wagon. Original caption reads: "Baled alfalfa, bacon, flour and grain which have all been shipped in from the north being hauled to the farm by a 'trusty convict' at Meridian, Miss. All of these products could and should have been raised in the south. By so doing the Southern farmer could have kept his money at home."
