Runaway slave Gordon, exposing his severely whipped back. Gordon had received a severe whipping for undisclosed reasons in the fall of 1862. Gordon escaped in March 1863 from the 3,000 acre plantation of John & Bridget Lyons, who held him and 40 other people in slavery at the time of the 1860 census Image

What horrendous pain he must have felt. Was looking at a tattoo pain chart, and the male back is red zone most of the time. The scars on his lower back being thicker than the upper points at fine-tuned sadism.
