  • Brothel Inspector Kansas City

Not only were these jailbirds exposed to extreme heat up to 115 degrees, they also had to face dangerous venemous enemies such as Black Widows, Rattlesnakes, Scorpions, Centipedes and even Gila Monsters! What a picture of Hell on Earth! One time, a man put his boots on without looking inside, and was bitten by a desert centipede. His leg went gangrenous and had to be amputated.

    • By 1860 there were 30,626 miles of railroad in the United States -- more than three times the mileage than existed just 10 years before.
