BRANDING AS PUNISHMENT
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
When was the world's last branding as punishment?
It was common in the early 1800’s to brand people for
crimes they had committed.
The initials branded on a person’s right hand were
the initials of the crime they had committed.
The last person branded as a punishment was Jonathan
Walker in 1844.
The initials branded on his right hand were “SS”
which signified slave stealing, but in actuality, he helped American slaves
escape to freedom in the Bahamas.
