Fort Laramie, WY - Guardhouse Basement Jail

Prisoners at Fort Laramie, Wyoming were held in the lower level of the guardhouse without benefit of furniture, heat or light. In 1878, after the post surgeon made frequent complaints, a new guardhouse was built. The prisoners were then allowed to sleep on straw mattresses on the floor and had blankets.
