After his 35-year prison sentence for leaking classified documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, Pfc. Bradley Manning (pictured) is headed for hard time at Fort Leavenworth, home to the American military's most famous prison.
The military built its first prison at Fort Leavenworth in the 1870s, and "The Castle" that so dominated the Army post's landscape for decades held as many as 1,500 prisoners. The current prison is much smaller, with room for only 515.
Leavenworth housed 14 German prisoners from World War II that were hanged there in 1945 for murdering other POWs they believed were traitors.
Just miles away in Lansing is the state's oldest prison, where the two men convicted of the Kansas killings that inspired Truman Capote’s book "In Cold Blood" were hanged in 1965.
