under the small normal looking town, is the Mine.
Like the chain gangs in the fields, all the prisoners down here are
and none of them are hard criminals.
Those send here are troublemakers from the field chain gangs, and
prisoners who have to disappear
for good, like Maud Adams who proved to be a senator´s daughter.
Fare the most of them however, have simply been arrested by random
just as Christina, while traveling through town, and sentenced
to hard labour for life , only to provide cheap labours to the coal mine,
owned by some very important men incl. the mayor and the governor.
Being send to the mine, is a life sentence.
Even there have been attempts, no one has ever
managed to get free again.
