Antebellum Reform Movements


Mentale Hospitals

  • Dorothea Dix exposed inhumane treatment, of the mentally ill.
  • States created mental hospitals, not prisions, to give the mentally ill a proper help


Prisoners were treated inhumanly no matter what they did.

Why they did this because they do not care about them and could care less what happened to them while they are in the prisons.
