31. k/r -- good post and discussion

Though it's not exactly the same as the Arizona law today, your post reminded me of another event that connects your interest in labor history (so you probably know about this, but I'll mention it anyway, in case it might help your project) with Arizona's efforts to get rid of "undesirables": the Bisbee Deportation.

One small quibble, with a point of fact about scalping: we didn't invent it. It was practiced in North America at least as far back as the 14th century, and may have also occurred in medieval European warfare. What colonial governments did do, though is offer rewards for scalps, which I'm sure helped to spread the practice.
