What is Leavenworth Famous For?
What rings the bell in a lot of people’s minds when they hear the word Leavenworth is the prison. Not to be confused with the United States Disciplinary Barracks, the only U.S. military’s maximum-security facility that houses male service members convicted in court-martials for violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, but Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary. It is a medium-security male prison that has held several notable inmates. For starters, James Earl Ray, Martin Luther King’s assassin, had spent time there, though it was for mail fraud. Machine Gun Kelly (not the rapper!) was an American Gangster whose real name was George Kelly Barnes. His crimes included bootlegging during the prohibition era and armed robbery. His most notorious stunt was kidnapping oil tycoon Charles F. Urschel for a $200,000 ransom, which would be about $3,198,250 today. Someone a bit more familiar would probably be Michael Vick, the former American football quarterback who primarily played with the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. In 2007, he pleaded guilty for his involvement in a dogfighting ring.
