A prison is an institution that has been crafted to detain convicted criminals as a rational and humane form of punishment. ?Prisoners' daily movements are tightly prescribed, and their compliance with routines is strictly enforced. The purpose of restrictions on inmates' freedom within the institution is said to be the maintenance of security.? (Yackle, 2003) Prisons have not always been in existence. ?Before there were prisons, serious crimes were almost always redressed by corporal or capital punishment.? (Pray, 1987) When a criminal was convicted, they were to pay fines, forced to endure bodily harm, and even death. The death plenty was the verdict that followed many crimes.

?[E]xecution could be prescribed for high treason, petty treason, murder, burglary, rape, sodomy, buggery, malicious maiming, manslaughter by stabbing, witchcraft by conjuration, and arson.? (Pray, 1987) Another form of punishment for the convicted was hard manual within workhouses. A workhouse was punishment for the lesser crimes and was the closest thing to imprisonment. Today, incarceration has become America's solution as punishment for convicted felons.
The Great Penitentiary Rivalry between the states of Pennsylvania and New York influenced American's thoughts towards the prison system. These two states had separate views of prison systems that helped shape the American prison system of today.
